Sanga for me and not just because I'm Sri Lankan. He's been really consistent for many years while the rest of our batsmen struggle to maintain any sort of respectable average.

Sanga just seems a way way way better bloke.
Dont know what you base that on. I've met him quite often and I hate the guy.

I have played with Sanga at University level in 1999 season. He was a nice bloke away from the field. On the field he's a very irritating prick (I was not by any means second to him in that aspect). I had few sledging wars with him during Inter Fac. tournaments. But end of the day vey friendly to have a beer and a chat, altough he was a SL A player by then.

Well everytime I've met him, he comes across as an arrogant prick.. Not that he's unfriendly, he just thinks he's better than everyone else. Stayed at his place and had dinner in a restaurant owned by his family though and we did have a great time on that particular trip.

Yeah, seems an absolute sweetheart in interviews, although his fellow countrymen hardly likely to call him a **** if he isn't one.

Sanga by the proverbial country mile currently tho; most handsome player to watch at the moment too, IMHO.

KP is lovely in interviews too tbf. So much nicer than the stereotype of the arrogant, ignorant foreigner that he's sometimes cast as.

Not unreasonably cast as I might add. Not that I mind, his whole general arrogance is as Corrin said, just him. He's one of these sorts who I would happily describe as "likeable", but never would I call him "nice".

Yeah, it's just that I don't consider justified arrogance a bad thing in a person. KP's brilliant, why is he expected to pretend that he isn't all the time? It's an English thing.

I would say they are both in top tier. Sanga's longevity, and the completeness of the record gives him the edge.

I would take sanga and use him as a wicket keeper batsman.. the guy does everything better..
