BOOK EVENT at Premadasa Stadium in 2011 – courtesy of http://www.islandcricket.lk/columns/michael_roberts/155590201/incursions-and-excursions-in-and-around-sri-lankan-cricket
This presentation of my book Incursions and Excursions in and around Sri Lankan Cricket occurred at the R. Premadasa Stadium last year, during the World Cup 2011 squad’s practice session. It was deliberately timed before the quarter-finals of the World Cup because this 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.
This gesture marks my 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 March 3, 2009, an event that is reviewed as Chapter VI in this book.
The book is available at Vijitha Yapa bookshops and at www.vijithayapa.com
