Dialog sponsors National Paralympics'

CT Sports: Sri Lanka's most prolific promoter of sports, Dialog Axiata PLC, has once again stepped in as the official sponsor of the, National Paralympics Contingent and Sri Lanka Army Para Games from 2015 to 2017. This was officially revealed at the press conference held at sports ministry auditorium on Wednesday.

The National Paralympics and Sri Lanka Army Para Games committees will secure the support of Sri Lanka's premier telecom service provider for the respective contingents of the two for all national and international competitions. The sponsors also powered the recently concluded 18th Army Para Games held at Diyagama.

The upcoming tournament International Paralympics World Championship held in Doha, Qatar will be the first international event this year they will sponsor where Sri Lanka will participate with seven athletes.
They earlier sponsored the National contingent to the World Paralympics back in 2000 and also sponsored the teams for the 2004 and 2008 games. In the 2012 Paralympics in London Pradeep Sanjaya was able to secure Sri Lanka's first medal at international level when he won a bronze in the men's 400 meters.

Speaking at the press Minister of Sports Dayasri Jayasekara said that he surprised that the National Paralympics Committees was so organized in their work, I've seen their day event scheduled for the year 2015 all completed but our ministry failed to do that.
When I was the North Central Chief Minister, I worked very closely with disabled people and I believe we need to support them more in future as well.

The Sri Lankan Paralympics Team for Doha will be lead by Anil Prasanna while the team will comprise of Upul Indika, Chuladasa, Chaminda Sampath Hettiarchchi, Dinesh Priyantha Herath, Amara Indumathi, Dumira Maduranga Alwis and Gamini Ekanayake who will stand in as the reserve player. The team will be coached by Rohitha Fernando and managed by Deepal Herath.

Should Dilshan have continued until Cricket World Cup 2019?

Yes No

“That was pathetic. No excuse at all. The whole team is responsible. Whoever the captain is, we have to back him and try and support him. The captain has to do so many other stuff. All the 11 guys must back him and support him.” “We have addressed the issue of finishing off the overs on time in the past as well, but it cropped up again. It’s so unfortunate to see Upul going out as he is a crucial player in our set up. He batted well against South Africa and it’s so unfortunate. This can’t happen again,” - Angelo Mathews


Cricket is a game of fine margins and Mathews is set to be a modern great. Hang in their Angie, this team can achieve something on this tour. Thirimane and the youngsters form was a real positive. Prasad was missed. Chameera should be persisted with. If Bairstow was our early outcome could have been very different.
