Want to give fitting farewell to retiring Kumar Sangakkara: Angelo Mathews

Colombo: Sri Lanka cricket captain Angelo Mathews on Wednesday said the islanders are determined to give a fitting send off to the retiring Kumar Sangakkara by winning the upcoming Test series against India.

"A series win is the best way to send off a player of Sangakkara's caliber," Mathews said.

Sangakkara has announced his retirement from international cricket after the second match of the three-Test series against India starting August 12.

Sangakkara's last match will be from August 20-24 at P Sara Oval here.

Mathews also said that his own participation in the first Test starting in Galle on August 12 is doubtful as he is yet to recover from a wrist sprain.

The hosts will also miss fast bowlers Dushmantha Chameera and Suranga Lakmal due to injuries.
