    Congrats to our girls for showing their courage in taking off the strong SA girls and hitting over 300 to win. Chamari as always led our girls hitting the highest individual score for a SL girl 195 erasing her previous highest score of 176 against the Aussies. Well done

    Heartening. When will they play test matches to beat in tests to make us significant and formidable in every sense?

    Coaching staff negligence Thursday, 18 April 2024 01:40 PM

    Hats off to Chamari.Wonder why our stupid coaching staff did not alert other batter DeSilva to allow Chamari to cross the double century.DeSilva scored a boundary then preventing Chamari to cross the line. Now this has happened several times when our cricketers missing a very significant milestone ,they say they were unaware of it, poor staff.

    Female version of Sanath Jayasuriya. Our cricketing women are better than our cricketing men.
