I extend my heartiest congratulations to our Cricket Team for regaining its proud full place in the Asian Cricket. They have won the Asian Championship giving a great glory to the Motherland. This victory is all the more significant because our spirited cricketers displayed an outstanding quality of fight-back to overcome initial setback in the finals.
I thank team members, their coaches, managers and everybody who worked relentlessly to bring back the Asia Cup to Sri Lanka after a gap of several years.
Our Cricket Team proved to the world once again our ability to overcome challenges and emerge victorious.
