Three school rugby teams suspended by Education Ministry
Dharmaraja College was banned for nine months due the incident which took place in their encounter against Joes one month back at the Bogambara Stadium in Kandy. Dharmaraja took a quick decision by taking action against the involved players plus their head coach. In history none of the other schools have done this even before an inquiry was held. The slap on Dharmaraja for nine months will leave next year players unable to participate in school rugby.

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.
