He is a legend. I don't think anyone could fill up his shoes in the current team, not even Chamara Silva.

thanks hilal. its always great to see aravinda batting. he is so stylish. these days most batsmen just bludgeon the ball with a heavy bat. but watching guys like aravinda, and these days sangakkara, its great to see how they manufacture their strokes.
