Sri Lanka's selectors have removed Angelo Mathews as ODI captain 10 months after he was asked to resume captaincy duties, and have appointed Test captain Dinesh Chandimal in his place. The move comes after Mathews attracted a hail of public criticism over the team's performance in the Asia Cup, where they were knocked out following first-round defeats to Bangladesh and Afghanistan.

The Trophy, offered to the champions of the ICC World Cup One Day Series, scheduled to be held in England in 2019, has been brought to Sri Lanka these days.

Born in Jaffna, come to Batticaloa, the Netball in her hands, she steps in her final destination delivering two Asian championships in the Sri Lankan Netball legacy. She must be the “Giraffe” of the Asian Netball games. What all other players ought to do was only handing her the ball, by any means necessary. She puts the ball in the net standing at the goal keep so easily knowing that there is no one else to challenge her height in the world. Both in 2009 and 2018 the contribution she made, the weight she lifted, for delivering an Asian Championship to Sri Lanka is beyond measure.
