    This is a timely idea because there will be no cricket in future, so that our children can visit the museum to get an idea of our cricket history.

    Put the present SLC officials and the team as an exhibit.

    Hope no bright sparks in d Govt like bond experts will think of how much they can earn by selling the 'World Cup Trophy'

    I think it's wonderful. Now our kids can go in there and see all the cool memorabilia.. instead of it just gathering dust in a room. Thank you, SLC!

    Stange. There is nothing seen or said about famous cricket players like Kumar Sankakara and others. Kumar always say he is Sri Lanka.

    Dear Harin The museum would have been opened by Arjuna Ranathunge the world cup winning captain, not you. Or should have been a person who had done the hard yards to build up cricket in Sri Lanka. We know that you doing a great job as the Minister of Sports and we love you, but these small things matter a lot for the cricket fraternity. Was Arjuna invited for the event at least? Now don't put the blame on organisers, you could have easily declined the offer when they invited you.

    Can anyone visit to see this?

    Looks like there is some hope looming on the horizon for SL cricket. Today is the day that will decide at the SLC election whether true cricket lovers will be elected to run the SLC. If mudalalis and pala's goons will be elected cricket itself will have a place in the museum.
