Gopalan trophy to be revived

Sri Lanka Cricket has initiated discussions with Tamil Nadu cricket Association to revive the popular Gopalan Trophy.

The Gopalan Trophy was played annually before the pre test era with Tamil Nadu and Sri Lanka hosting the game on a reciprocal basis.

The bi-annual trophy was initiated in 1952 with the starting of a silver jubilee fund to celebrate M.J.Gopalan’s 25 years as a cricket player.

We are proud to state that we have proposed to the T.N.C.A to stage the games in Sri Lanka during the month of August this year.
