Sri Lanka Cricket presented a Rs. 5 million donation to Sri Lanka's legendary cheerleader, Percy Abeysekera, to support his well-being and maintenance of good health.
The decision was taken by the Executive Committee of Sri Lanka Cricket, headed by the President of Sri Lanka Cricket, Shammi Silva.
"Percy's contribution to the game of cricket in Sri Lanka as a cheerleader is immeasurable, and he has been a tower of strength for the players and to the game as a whole. It was our turn to give back and look into his well-being," Mohan de Silva said.
The donation was handed over to Mr. Abeysekera by Mohan De Silva when he visited Percy’s house on behalf of Sri Lanka Cricket to inquire about his health and well-being, the SLC said.
