    From ODIs after the World Cup.

    I'd imagine he'd want to score some runs in his last five-day games for Sri Lanka so he'll probably hang-on for the Bangladesh matches afterwards, too.

    Jaya was a sensation ! One year small wonder . I guess that he is one of the revolutionary batsmen of ODI cricket.. Hmm it's his personal wish to play and I think that he is not doing justice to his health and the game might create some health and some more family issues at this age .

    Didn't he retire last year, only to be talked back?

    Hardly the actions of one with "no signs of retirement" to be fair.

    Last year (or was it 2005) it seemed like he had no future in the game, but SL were desperate and called him back. Now look at how he's playing, and how SL are playing?

    He'll more than likely retire by year's end at the least, if not earlier, but why retire now when you're playing as good as you've played in the last 5 years, and your team is winning?

    Probably because he's had enough ?!?

    It never seemed like he had no future in ODIs - at least not from anything I read - but he's hardly set The World alight since his Test return, has he...?

    Asantha de Mel called him back on pretty dubious grounds anyhow: "he's played in England" was about the sum of it. Well, yes, he had, but he'd averaged in the mid-20s.

    He's proved he is still as good as he ever was, in certain spells. In the 5th ODI in NZ, he was blistering.

    In ODIs he's rarely strayed from his norm. He's always had bursts of phenominal scoring and lengthy run-droughts.

    But in Tests his re-instation hasn't, to date, paid-off. Of course, in ODIs he didn't need to be reinstated because he never left.
