Today is the T20 Finals between Sri Lanka and the West Indies in Colombo. Mahela Jayawardene, Sri Lanka’s T20 Captain and leading player in the finals today was extremely kind to Vernon Corea back in the summer of 2002 in the United Kingdom when he met him in the House of Commons in the Palace of Westminster. Aravinda de Silva, Sanath Jayasuriya, Muttiah Muralitheran and the coach Dav Whatmore all came and spoke to Vernon. It was his last public engagement in the United Kingdom before he passed away in September 2002.
Sri Lankan mega stars Bathiya and Santhush who are behind the ICC Official T20 song also released a message on Vernon Corea which has been published in today’s ‘Sunday Island’ newspaper in the WATCHOUT Magazine.
