Sangakkara overwhelmed by trip to Pakistan

Kumar Sangakkara ranks as one of the greatest batsmen ever to play the game. Currently serving as the Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) president, Sangakkara accompanied a squad comprising top players on a tour of Pakistan for three T20s and one 50-over fixtures.

Sangakkara’s humbling gesture to lead the MCC contingent on yet another trip to Pakistan to speed up the process of the resumption of top-flight cricket in the country has garnered a lot of praise. His efforts were lauded in a sentimental tweet penned by incumbent Pakistan bowling coach Waqar Younis, who thanked Sangakkara for being such a good friend to the nation in its time of need.

Waqar was awestruck by the former Sri Lankan skipper’s compassionate character and giving a helping hand in difficult times. In reply, Sangakkara commented on the overwhelming reception he was being greeted to in Pakistan with hordes of fans flocking to see him in action.
