    I have a suggestion which might be too late to put into effect. It would be fitting if our winning team can be appreciated as much Sri Lankans as possible in every corner of the country. As we have the Mattala International Airport and the Southern highway, if we can fly our team with their spouses to Mattala from Katunayake, of course with team’s consent and bring them to Colombo by road and through the highway in super comfort, air condition open deck bus, most of the Sri Lankans from deep south to Colombo could honor them and appreciate their effort showing solidarity, Highway could be closed for some time for ordinary traffic and allow people to follow the entourage in any vehicle or by foot which could be a grand finale before reaching the Maitland Crescent. The team deserves the appreciation of one and all and people deserve to see their heroes in flesh.
