SL vs AUS : Sri Lanka to dedicate first Test match to late Shane Warne


Sri Lanka Cricket in collaboration with the Ministries of Tourism and Sports has decided to dedicate the 1st Test match to be played between Sri Lanka and Australia to cricket legend Shane Warne.

An Australian international Hall of Fame cricketer, Warne passed away earlier this year in March, much to the shock of the entire cricketing world.

A fierce rival of Sri Lanka but also a dear friend, he flew down to Sri Lanka in the wake of the Tsunami devastation and toured ravaged areas contributing generously to families affected by the tsunami.

Minister of Tourism, Harin Fernando said that Warne’s family members are expected to attend the said Test match, which will be played at the Galle International Cricket ground on 29 June.
