In a video message posted on the social networking site, Sangakkara said that on his return from London, he had taken solitude in Colombo.
He said that he had registered himself at the police station upon his return and decided to go to Quarantina for 14 days, following the government’s directive.
MCC president and former captain Sangakkara says precautions should be taken in view of the Corona virus to prevent the deadly outbreak.
Australian offensive batsman Glenn Maxwell, on the other hand, also moved to Quarantina, saying he should be alone to help one another.
It should be noted that many international players, including English cricketer Alex Hales, have been isolated in the past.
