New Year, Tony Greig and Geneva

Sri Lankans are celebrating the Sinhala and Tamil New Year with the National Cricket Team. I can remember how Arjuna Ranatunga guided Sri Lanka for the historical world cup victory on 17th March 1996. This year too a similar incident has occurred on 6th April 2014, under the captaincy of Lasith Malinga. It was a fitting farewell for Kumar Sangakkara and Mahela Jayewardena. Meanwhile, the team sprit with sacrifices done by Dinesh Chandmial cannot be underestimated.
