The Bank of Ceylon Inter Provincial tournament will draw big crowds to the Welegedera Stadium tomorrow. Team Hidramani Ruhuna is a strong side with plenty of established all rounder’s. Skipper Upul Tharanga will open the batting with Sanath Jayasuriya who is determined to get back into the national side.
Indika De Seram can be devastating if he gets his eye in, however Dilhara Lokuhettige will have to play a vital role and show his all round ability. Off spinner Sachithra Senanayaka will head the spin department while Lasith Malinga will look to impress and get back his devastating form.
