When Jane Austen penned her classy novel Pride and Prejudice, I am sure the names of Hashan Tillekeratne and Arjuna Ranatunga may not have come to her equation at all. Yet, the present quagmire of cricket that has erupted around the two former Lankan cricketers at least has a lot to do with the title of that novel two centuries later.
“All cricketers should play rugby-football, at least tap rugby. This will make them agile, acquire sharp reflexes and be able to think fast on their feet”. This bit of advice comes from former Sri Lanka cricketer, coach, manager and one of the most respected personalities in cricket - Roy Dias.
