Lankans look to the future

Sri Lanka Cricket is set to draw up a programme to regain past glory for the Island.

11 years on from their heroic 1996 World Cup win, the governing body for Sri Lanka wants to make its cricketers the best in both Test and ODI arenas.

It looks likely that the Caribbean tournament will be the last time we will see the opening talents of Sanath Jayasuriya and, with a few other team-mates approaching the end of their careers, it marks an important time to develop young blood.

**The Nutley will be publishing some World Cup articles in the build-up to the tournament, including an interview with the MD of Singer, who sponsored Sri Lanka to glory in 1996.
