Dear Friends / Colleagues and Cricket Fans world over.
I am shocked and sad to inform all of you of a bereavement in my family the untimely and unfortunate death of my loving Dad Ranjan last night.
All this almost on the eve of a very important Test series and tour of the West Indies.
On behalf of my Mother and immediate family please uphold us in your prayers and meditation.
Tough as it is we will face the shocking change of events in our family going forward thro the next couple of days and will respect your understanding in terms of our privacy during this moment of grief.
Thank you for all your concerns, Sympathies and many messages received in all forms.
I wish Team SL the very best during the Tour of the Windies – Boys, even though I may not be around to battle the Windies while you do so my heart will always be with Team Sri Lanka 🇱🇰
