Sangakkara's Address at MCC Spirit of Cricket Lecture at Lord's In an hour-long speech that earned him a standing ovation,

Sangakkara charted the unique history of cricket in his country, and called on Sri Lanka Cricket to root out its corrupt practices, and recognise the huge role that the sport now needs to play in promoting reconciliation at the end of a 30-year civil war. (ESPN-Cricinfo)

I do not own the copyrights to this video. I am only sharing this as I believe it is a brilliant piece of fine oratory graciously sprinkled with interesting anecdotes, which would not only appeal to sports lovers, but would also provide an interesting insight into the culture of subcontinent, and how cricket as a sport has shaped the thoughts and aspirations of the region.
