I am very grateful to Bangladesh Cricket Board for requesting me to pen in a few thoughts with regard to the forthcoming triangular, scheduled to be played in Bangladesh, involving my country, host nation Bangladesh and our neighbours India.
We have always supported our friendly cricket playing neighbour and close friends Bangladesh in their rightful thirst in achieving cricketing excellence. So many of our national players have played in Bangladesh domestic tournament and many coaches from Sri Lanka have been a part of Bangladesh’s coaching unit both at junior and national level.
We have always supported your wonderful country not only as an Asian partner, but considering the passion that Bangladesh has for our beloved game.
We are proud that you have produced world class players in recent times. I have no doubt whatsoever that Cricket will grow from strength to strength in your country and the game will live to infinity.
I wish all three teams the best of luck, and sign off with this thought, “Play the game fair and to the best of your ability, keeping in my mind the spirit of cricket.
Wish you all a blissful 2010.
Sri Lanka Cricket
