‘The weight of 1.2 billion expectations, yeah?’

The Sri Lankan captain Kumar Sangakkara is one of the more studious cricketers going around.

Naturally, he brings all his erudition to the 22-yard strip even when it comes to as mundane a task as giving lip service to the opposition for cause and country, as the South African skipper Shaun Pollock found out in the 2007 World Cup.
