    October 29, 2014

    Sri Lanka Cricket proudly announces that the 1st ever Turf Wicket built in the North of Sri Lanka will be opened today (29) at 9.30 am. at St. Patrick's College Jaffna.


    This turf wicket was a concept of  Sanath Jayasuriya MP who together with Maj Gen. Udaya Perera & Brig. Thirinawu Karasu of SL Army made this a reality for the sportsman of the North & East.

    Sri Lanka Cricket Executive Committee unanimously approved the expenditure of Rs. 3 million on the Turf wicket & Rs. 5 million for the ground construction. SL Army played a major role by giving the manpower needed for this magnanimous venture.


    A T20 cricket match will be played to mark the opening of the turf wicket and past national hero's Sanath Jayasuriya, Promodaya Wickramasinghe, Upul Chanadana, Ravindra Pushpakumara, Niroshan Bandarathilake & Lanka Silva, will be in action against the North & East Combined Under 23 team (SLC Under 23 Finalist).  (SDF/KH)
