Incursions And Excursions In And Around Sri Lankan Cricket

Micheal Roberts presents a copy to Anura Tennakoon

In a symbolic gesture of a token character Michael Roberts presents a copy of ‘Incursions and Excursions in and around Sri Lankan Cricket’ to the Sri Lankan cricket team through Anura Tennekoon, its Manager at present. This gesture marks the author’s appreciation of the achievements secured by the various Sri Lankan squads in recent years and, most significantly, the measured and calm manner in which they responded to the terrorist attack in Lahore on 3rd March 2009, an event that is reviewed as Chapter VI in this book.
This presentation occurred at the Premadasa Stadium during the World Cup squad’s practice session. It was deliberately timed BEFORE the quarter-finals of the 2011 World Cup because the author holds that the plaudits that should be extended to the cricketers remain valid irrespective of the joys or sorrows attending the outcome of one game.
