Prof. Arjuna de Silva, the President of newly-appointed Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) Management Committee yesterday confirmed that a charity T20 match between a Sri Lanka legends team and a team comprising of members of the current national team would take place on May 4 at the Pallekele International Cricket Stadium.


The news comes a month after the Tillakaratne Dilshan-led Sri Lanka Legends side came runners-up in the Road Safety World Series tournament held in India where they put together a string of memorable performances that captured the attention of fans back home.


The match is expected to be televised and - subject to Health Ministry approval - could be made open to spectators, albeit with restrictions imposed on the numbers in attendance.  
“We are looking at conducting the match on May 4. We will have to play it at Pallekele following the Bangladesh series since the lights at the R. Premadasa Stadium are not functioning properly. The match will be televised, and we are in discussions with the Health Ministry about bringing in some crowds,” de Silva said.


Ashley De Silva, the Secretary of the Management Committee indicated that the team going up against the Sri Lanka Legends side would not be the first-choice national side.
“That team might comprise of some of the national players but will not be the national team as such.  he stated.
