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.

Sri Lanka's designated ODI captain, Angelo Mathews, will lead them against South Africa in the five-match ODI series scheduled to begin from July 29. Mathews was reinstated as Sri Lanka's limited-overs captain in January this year, but was hit by injury less than two weeks into his new leadership stint. He had since been out of both ODIs and T20Is for Sri Lanka. Dinesh Chandimal, who led Sri Lanka in Mathews' absence, and who will serve a four-match ODI ban, has not been included in the squad.
