‘Sri Lankan Of The Year’ 2019 – Kumar Sangakkara

Pioneering business magazine LMD has announced that its ‘Sri Lankan Of The Year’ (SLOTY) for 2019 is former cricketing hero Kumar Sangakkara.

Paying tribute to Sri Lanka’s foremost brand ambassador, LMD says: “He is one of a handful of Sri Lankans whose eloquence stands out in any part of the world.”

LMD notes that Sangakkara is only the second Sri Lankan to win the annual award twice and he follows Sri Lanka-bhimanya Lakshman Kadirgamar, its first SLOTY.

Sangakkara’s second nomination is a tribute to his recent appointment as President of the Lord’s based Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) – the first foreigner to be invited to run cricket’s governing body.
