Angelo Mathews’ dilemma over name of his son

There are rumours that he can name his son after Jacques Kallis.

Sri Lankan skipper Angelo Mathews became a father one month ago but he is yet to decide the name of his son. Mathews and his wife haven’t yet  finalized a name for their son. He is a big fan of former South African all-rounder Jacques Kallis and there were rumors that Mathews can name his son after this legend.

However, he was asked about the same and reporters got a clear ‘No’ as he replied, “No, the name will not be Jacques.” The couple said, “We are looking at various options and then will decide a name.” They are looking for a Sri Lankan name.

Mathews didn’t have a great season as he was injured most of the time and his team took the field without his services. Now, he is looking forward to playing in the IPL, where Delhi Daredevils bought him for this season. The 29-year-old has been a part of DD in his earlier stint in the Indian Premier League.

Sri Lanka is playing against Bangladesh in their home, but Mathews-less team lost the second Test and series ended as a draw. Rangana Herath led Sri Lanka in his absence. Angelo Mathews holds the key role for Sri Lanka’s chances in the forthcoming Champions Trophy in England.
