Kumar Sangakkara’s wife Yehali made his husband final Test special. She interviewed an Aussie, who travelled to Colombo to see final Sangakkara bat, at P Sara Oval when her husband was busy for the national duty, NDTV reported. She took a mike and disguise as a journalist and interviewed an Aussie fan to know how much he adores her husband.
Sangakkara today (Thursday) morning received massive applause when he walked through the “archway of cricket bats.” In an informal interview, the Aussie fan claimed himself as the most passionate supporters of Sangakkara.
Yehali interviewed an Aussie fan, who claimed to be one of the most passionate supporters of Sangakkara. “I love Kumar. He is one of the all-time greats of cricket. I am an Australian but am a huge supporter of Sri Lankan cricket,” said the anonymous fan, who was not aware that the person interviewing him was none other than Mrs Sangakkara.
“It’s a sad day to see Kumar retire, but we will always remember his great innings,” the Aussie went on. Yehali maintained a straight face for most parts of the interview but burst out laughing when she finally revealed to the fan that she was married to the cricket star.
“Did you know I am his wife? And I thank you for all the kind words,” she said, concluding the interview. Sangakkara will hang his boots at the end of the Colombo Test – his 134th. He continues to have a huge fan following around the world – one that has grown through the course of each of his 39 tons since his debut in 2000.
