Sri Lanka was able to win 8 new South Asian youth records and 12 gold medals, 10 silver medals and 19 bronze medals at the South Asian Junior Athletic Championship. India won the most number of medals at the Championship and made 12 new records.

Is it a dilemma or, is it a situation we have designed on our own with bad intentions. There was a time when Sri Lanka’s sports were meandering or rather, perambulating at a leisurely pace. Yet, we became wide awake from that slumber in the 1990s, especially, through cricket and, in 1996, we reached the peak when we won the ICC Cricket World Cup – by far the biggest sporting achievement in our sports history.

Sri Lanka Cricket's elections will be held at the board's Annual General Meeting on 19th May, SLC has announced, with the deadline for nominations set for April 27. Incumbent President Thilanga Sumathipala confirmed that he would run for another two-year term following recent changes to Sri Lanka's Sports Law.
