Dubai: Sri Lankan skipper Sanath Jayasuriya could not have given a better birthday gift to his wife Sandra than a magnificent innings of 189 against India in the coca cola cup final at Sharjah on Sunday to take the islanders to a massive victory.''Yes, it is a grand birthday present for me though I don't think I inspired him,'' Sandra was quoted as saying in 'Khaleej Times'. It was virtually love at first sight for Sandra, a former Sri Lankan airlines employee, when she met the Sri Lankan captain. ''I have been a cricket fan and I liked him a lot after first seeing him,'' she admitted.This is Jayasuriya's second marriage, with the first lasting less than a year. This time, however, Sanath and Sandra opted for a quiet wedding in January and for the two of them, the marriage seems set for a long innings.Sri Lankan coach Davenell Whatmore, elated over the team's huge victory over india, smiled and said "behind every great player, there is a wife". A blushing Jayasuriya agreed with his coach and said "yes, what Davenell says is true". Jayasuriya's wife was present at the Sharjah Stadium to cheer the Sri Lankan team during all their matches. "I have watched all the matches in Sharjah but I miss him a lot when he goes on tours," she said. UNI
