Sanath set for new partnership

By Bandula Jayasekera

Leaders and celebrities ranging from  President  Kumaratunga  and
cabinet  ministers  to  all  Sri  Lanka's  cricket  stars will be
present at the much heralded wedding of Sri  Lanka's  top  player
Sanath   Jayasuriya   to   former   AirLanka  stewardess  Sumudhu
Karunanayake at the five star Oberoi on Friday.

The guests for this wedding of the year  will  however  be  minus
former Miss World Aishwarya Rai, a friend and fan of Sanath.

The beauty queen was invited but regrets she is unable to make it
due  to  pressure of film commitments, her father Krishna Raj Rai
told Midweek Mirror by telephone yesterday.

Sanath and Aishwarya were judges at the  Miss  World  pageant  in
Bangalor 1996.

The Midweek Mirror learns that an invitation for Sanath  and  his
bride  to  come to the UAE soon after the wedding has been turned
down in view of his commitments for the upcoming tour by New Zea-
land.
