Former Cambrian and cricket coach of Maldives Nilantha Cooray carried away the Man of the Match Award against Thailand and was picked as the Player of the Tournament in the ICC – Global Ranking T/20 Triangular series held in Kinrara International Grounds in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Maldives, Thailand and Malayasia participated and Nilantha represented Maldives. Perhaps this may the first instance that a Cambrian received these awards.

Nilantha playing in three matches scored 101 runs with an unbeaten 56 runs against Thailand and his average was 50.5 and his strike rate was 131.7 and also he claimed six scalps and the best being 3 for 26 versus Malaysia.
