Dinuka - Sri Lanka’s champion shuttler

Twenty three year old Dinuka Karunaratne became the new national badminton champion by default.
He is eager, smart and quite convinced that if his eldest brother Niluka had played then he would definitely have not been the champion. The Karunaratne brothers - Niluka, Diluka, Dinuka and Chamika live and breathe badminton every single day of their lives. Dinuka was the one chosen by ’Aiya’ to play in this year’s Nationals just to keep the title in the family.
How do you feel to be the National Champion for the first time in your life? I feel so happy but as you know my brother Niluka was under a ban that was lifted the day after the badminton nationals.
