Correcting Confusions: Sri Lanka vs Pakistan

Michael Tissera’s Clarification … correcting https://thuppahi.wordpress.com/2017/11/26/the-cricketing-universe-of-sri-lanka-a-short-history-written-in-2007/

This is the Squad that toured Pakistan and lost all three Test Matches …. and not the one that beat Pakistan in Sri Lanka

Hi Mike, ……..Re the article and picture under the heading the team that beat Pakistan is not correct. This is the team that toured Pakistan and lost all 3 tests. The team that beat Pakistan was as follows;

G. Razick, N. Chanmugan, T.C.T.Edwards, D. Lieversz, A.Polonowita, B.G.Reid, C.M.Ponniah, S. Devaraj, P.I.Pieris, H.I.K.Fernando, A. Fuard, M.H.Tissera.
Cheers,   ……  Michael

NB: Aficianados will note that the Pakistan Touring Squad included two ‘imports’ from UK in Clive Inman and Stanley Jayasinghe. Tissera, P.I.Pieris, H.I.K.Fernando, N. Chanmugan are in the picture above. ….and the two listings serve to underline the range and quality of the players emerging from domestic ranks in the early 1960s through to the 1970s — though emigration (e.g. Balakrishnan, Idroos, Ernst, Wimalaratne, Gurusinghe) depleted the ranks.

IF my ‘google’ punting is on the right track this may be the match in question [but i need to get at Perera’s Janashakthi cricket book at home in Adelaide).
