Saravanamuttu Stadium on Friday.
Equipment & venues ready on schedule
More than 80% of the equipment needed for 10th
South Asian Games have arrived, according to NOC President Hemasiri
Fernando. The Lankan Olympic chief, who is playing a big role in the
organising structure of the eight-nation Games, said most of the
equipment needed for the mega event have arrived.
Mahela Jayawardena an example
It was Mahela Jayawardena's exemplary leadership
and from the front that provided the sweet smell of success that
enabled the Lankans to give continuity to their streak that began in
England with victory in the final Test by beating South Africa in
the First Test.
