Sachith crowned Schoolboy Cricketer 2008
Three decades ago a young, Royalist named Ranjan Madugalle along with some others from the cricketing ilk graced the dais to be crowned in their respective disciplines in Bata’s first effort as school cricket promoters.
We are very focussed on our cricket
Returning to test cricket after months of Twenty-20 and one day cricket is a difficult task. It is made all the more difficult when your opponents are neighbouring India, whose players are acclimatised to conditions similar to ours and when you have to bat first on a wicket that has been made damp by some heavy showers.
Ensure that a greater percentage of right decisions are made
We knew the importance of starting this test series strongly and its being really pleasing to see how well the team has responded to that challenge. The top order took responsibility with the bat, showing the necessary application required, and the bowlers, especially Murali and Ajantha, have been brilliant. I think it must have been the first time since the early days of his career that the pre-match build-up has not focused on Murali. The excitement around Ajantha has been incredible.
