Jayasuriya to join politics

Sri Lankan cricketer Sanath Jayasuriya would embark on a political career by taking part in the upcoming parliamentary polls scheduled to be held on April 8.
Jayasuriya is seeking to become a Member of Parliament under the ruling coalition United People Freedom Alliance (UPFA) in the south coast district of Matara, his hometown. The 40-year-old was recently dropped from the Sri Lankan ODI team but he has no plans to end his cricketing career in spite of his entry into politics.
