Addressing a media briefing in Colombo on Thursday, Deputy Minister of Postal Services, Sanath Jayasuriya stated that steps are being taken to issue a commemorative stamp for Mahela Jayawardene.

He shared these views:

[quote]Once Mahela Jayawardene retired from test cricket, many journalists inquired whether a stamp will be issued for him. My minister, that is Jeevan Kumaratunge stated that if Sri Lanka Cricket makes a formal request that the Postal Services Department can look into it.  Like you asked, can I do it because I am the Chairman of Selectors and I also act as a member of the Sri Lanka Cricket Executive Committee. During the next Executive Committee Meeting we will discuss this and take steps to inform my minister. There are numerous stamp collectors and I believe this will be a good thing for the Postal Services Department both locally and internationally. As the Postal Department we will pay close attention to it and once we receive all the details we will provide a solution. [/quote]
