Sri Lanka likely to make one change: Batsmen must apply themselves

Having dominated India a major part of the first test at Kolkotta despite the final hiccup on the fifth day Sri Lanka will go in to tomorrow’s second test match content of having settled for a draw. The scare of ending up on a meager 75 for 7 wickets chasing a target of 231 is bad digesting. But end of the day a draw is a draw and on that note skipper Dinesh Chandimal and his charges can take heart as they prepare to get on the drawing board come tomorrow’s second of the 3-match Test series against India on Friday.

Sri Lanka Women’s Under-23 Development Squad lose to Thailand Women in first ever tour

The mooting of the Sri Lanka Women’s Under-23 Development Squad’s recent tour of Thailand recently is viewed as a window to boosting the island nation’s women’s cricket. A 16 member squad drawn from the cream of the domestic structure in that age group played three T20 matches against a comparatively experienced Thailand national team that got the better of the exchanges. But the bottom line from a Sri Lankan perspective was that at long last the structure had been put in place by Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) for lower rung youth teams to gain international exposure to feed the national team like in the men’s cricket. As the Head of Operations of Domestic Cricket, Chinthaka Edirimanne, and the Convener of… Read More →
