National selectors include Kulathunga for the World Cup

Mar 18, 2010 8:00:00 PM - aussieindolanka.com
Sri Lanka’s national cricket selectors have included Jeevantha Kulathunga in the 30-man probable squad for the forthcoming ICC WC T20 tournament scheduled to be held in the West Indies from 30th April to 16th May. A media release from Sri Lanka Cricket said on Thursday that "Jeevantha was included into the squad considering his outstanding performance in the recently concluded Bank of Ceylon inter provincial T/20 tournament." Jeevantha who represented Wayamba aggregated 277 runs in six innings which included his highest score of an unbeaten 104, the fastest T/20 century recorded in Sri Lanka. Jeevantha recorded the best batting average of 69.25 and a strike rate of 152.19. He was later adjudged the most outstanding player of the tournament. However, Kulatunga’s inclusion has made Sri Lanka’s squad a 31-member squad though the media release referred to it as a 30-member squad, according SLC Media Manager Brian Thomas.   www.dailymirror.lk/index.php/sports/cricket/2473-national-selectors-include-kulathunga-for-the-world-cup.html
