Roshan’s Final Guardianship at the Toss … on Historic Day

Roshan Adelaide Oval, 28 November 2015 …

Message from Quintus de Zylva: ROSHAN retires after a distinguished career in cricket. He was a schoolboy cricketer for Nalanda College when he first visited Australia as the recipient of a cricket scholarship from the Sri Lanka Cricket Foundation of Victoria thirty years ago. He then went on to play for Sri Lanka and finally became an ICC match referee.Roshan distinguished himself as a man of high principles throughout his cricket career. He has more recently been a generous donor of funds to build a school at Veherathenna to promote the education of children who live in a remote village off Anuradhapura. His friends in Melbourne have very proudly supported him in this endeavour and will continue to do so in the future.
