NEWS – Helping Over a Million Youth Discover Their Passion – February 26, 2015.

Youth in Ontario can now apply for summer jobs and gain valuable skills and experience this summer.

Since 2004, Ontario’s Summer Jobs programs have helped almost 1,100,000 students find summer jobs, start businesses and access employment services. Each year, the programs help more than 100,000 students and youth:

More information is available at www.ontario.ca/readysetwork, along with details on year-round programs to help youth under 30 build skills, start a business, or find a job.

Helping young people get work experience is part of the government’s economic plan for Ontario. The four-part plan is building Ontario up by investing in people’s talents and skills, building new public infrastructure like roads and transit, creating a dynamic, supportive environment where business thrives and building a secure savings plan so everyone can afford to retire.

By supporting Ontario’s Summer Jobs programs, our government is helping students test their skills and discover their passion, which is a vital investment in the future of our province.”

— Reza Moridi, Minister of Training, Colleges and Universities

“Today we’re marking an historic milestone – one million summer job opportunities for youth created since 2004. Through efforts like our Jobs for Youth Program and the Youth in Policing Initiative, we’re giving at-risk youth the opportunity to change their lives and build the foundations for future success, not only for them but for Ontario. Investing in our youth through programs like these is a wise investment in the prosperity of our province.”

— Tracy MacCharles, Minister of Children and Youth Services

“The YMCA is a strong partner of the Ontario government in providing a wide range of employment support and programs to individuals to improve their skills, build confidence to gain and retain meaningful employment, identify their career goals and connect with employers.”

— Darlene Holowachuk, Senior Vice President, Operations, Employment and Community, YMCA of Greater Toronto

QUICK FACTS

§ In 2014, Ontario’s Summer Jobs programs allocated almost $78.5 million, which helped 117,217 students.

§ Ontario is offering employers a $2-per-hour hiring incentive to hire summer students.

§ Ontario’s Youth Jobs Strategy is investing $295 million over two years to help 30,000 young people aged 15-29 find work, build job skills and start their own businesses.

Lemmy & Sandra Ferdinandusz celebrate their 50th Wedding Anniversary

Posted on 28 February 2015 by TSL

By: Upali Obeyesekere – Editor, The Times of Sri Lanka.

Lemmy and Sandra Ferdinandusz celebrated the 50th anniversary of their wedding on January 29, 2015, in Barrie with family and close friends. It was truly a celebration of love, dedication and commitment to each other that is truly inspirational to all who know this lovely couple. Lemmy and Sandra have lived by example and demonstrated the reality that marriage is caring and sharing , giving and forgiving, loving and being loved, walking hand in hand, taking heart to heart, to give and to take and to see through each other’s eyes.

A quote from Dave Grohl below that reflects the 50-years Lemmy and Sandra have spent as a married couple:
“There’s a big difference between falling in love with someone and falling in love with someone and getting married. Usually, after you get married, you fall in love with the person even more!”

On January 29, 1965, vivacious Sandra Godlieb from Mutwal married the dashing and debonair Lemmy Fernandusz at All Saints Church in Borella. The simple ceremony was witnessed by family and a coterie of close friends from both sides. After the wedding the couple were taken to St. Jude’s Church at Indigolla (Gampaha) by his brother Gaston and the rest is history. Lemmy is a proud alumnus of St. Benedict’s College, Kotahena while Sandra attended Anglican Girls School in Colombo.

It was a marriage made in heaven. Lemmy was 14 when he first met Sandra who was 11. It was a game of Carrom and Badminton that brought them together at a mutual friend Romany Pietersz’s family home. Following the courtship – Lemmy and Sandra’s journey as a married couple began in Mutwal, Sri Lanka in 1965, had one stop in Copenhagen, Denmark for two years and then to Mississauga, Canada in 1975. In the process, Sandra and Lemmy were blessed with three lovely children Dirk, Kurt and Tertia and two grand-children Kiev & Liam (children of daughter Tertia and her husband Jason).

This year marks the golden wedding anniversary for Lemmy and Sandra who will also celebrate their 40th anniversary in Canada. In his own inimitable way, Lemmy simply says, “The Good Lord has blessed & rewarded us to settle down with comfort, employment opportunities & a wealth of many caring and sincere friends that means the world to us. Thank the lord and Canada for making it all possible.”

This writer has been associated with Lemmy and Sandra for almost 38 of his 40 years in Canada. They are a lovely couple and may god bless them abundantly and keep them in good health. They make this world a better place to live. All those who know Lemmy and Sandra will join me in wishing them a belated happy 50th anniversary!

44 year-old Sri Lankan lady killed in U.K. road accident

Posted on 28 February 2015 by TSL

A mother-of-two who died in a hit and run crash fled Sri Lanka’s civil war eight years ago and had only recently been reunited with her husband and daughter in London. Subahari Sothilingam, 44, was struck by a silver C-class Mercedes outside her home in Hendon on her way to work at 6am recently. She suffered multiple head injuries and died in hospital shortly afterwards. Mrs Sothilingam, a caterer, moved to London in 2006 at the height of the Government clampdown against Tamils in her island homeland. Her husband Sothilingam Selathurai stayed behind while their two children completed their education.

Mr Selathurai, 44, and their daughter Hamsana, 18, came to the capital in October. Their son Vasanth, 22, is still in Sri Lanka finishing his computer science studies.

The car was on the stretch of the A5 in West Hendon when it hit Mrs Sothilingam as she crossed the busy road to catch a bus to Royal Park.

The car did not stop and drove off towards Edgware Road and the North Circular.

Her husband, who does not speak English, told the Standard today of his family’s devastation.

Speaking through a relative, he said: “There is nothing that can be done now, it’s all finished. I left her for eight years when she came to England and joined her five months ago.

“It was always her dream for us to all be together.”

The couple met in 1992 while still at school in Hatton, in southern Sri Lanka, and were together for 14 years before Mrs Sothilingam travelled to the UK to join relatives in London.

Her husband added: “We were together from school, she was my sweetheart. It was a very loving marriage. Even for eight years we were apart, we were in love.”

Her niece Paarkavi Jegatheeswaran, 21, said: “My aunt was a family-orientated person and she was very talkative. She was very popular and well-liked.

“We are a close family and she was always checking on us to make sure we were okay. She was always happiest surrounded by her family.

“She was on the way to work when she was hit. It’s the same route she’s taken every working day for the last few years. It was completely normal for her to go to work at that time and has made the journey so many times.”

Neighbours in Hendon West Broadway said the road was closed for several hours. Debris from the front of the car was found lying in the road several hundred yards away by investigators.

A man in his forties, who would not be named, said: “The lady was lying in the road and then the ambulance turned up soon afterwards. I counted 10 police cars.”

Police today appealed for witnesses to come forward.

Detective Sergeant Stephen Pidgeon said: “There were a number of people who may have witnessed the events in the lead up to the collision or the actual collision itself. If anyone does have any information I urge them to come forward and help us with our investigation.”

Anyone with any information is asked to call police on 0208 991 9555 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

A 26-year-old man handed himself in to police last night and was arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous by driving and failing to stop at the scene of an accident. He was bailed until April.

Ice-cool Williamson wins New Zealand a thriller against Australia

Posted on 28 February 2015 by TSL

New Zealand 152 for 9 (McCullum 50, Williamson 45*, Starc 6-28) beat Australia 151 (Haddin 43, Boult 5-27, Southee 2-65, Vettori 2-41) by one wicket.

This was the match the 2015 World Cup was crying out for, a competitive contest between two major sides, and the co-hosts played out a thriller in front of a packed and partisan Auckland crowd. The game had everything: perfect weather, a full house, a flurry of early boundaries followed by eye-popping collapses, sensational swing bowling, clever spin bowling, and perhaps the calmest batsman in the world hitting one of the fastest bowlers in the world for a straight six to seal a one-wicket victory for New Zealand. When Kane Williamson put Pat Cummins back over his head to win the match, and the Chappell-Hadlee Trophy with it, more than 40,000 stomachs unknotted at Eden Park, and even this most staid of cricketers allowed himself a fist-pump to celebrate.

It shouldn’t have been that hard. Never in Australia’s history had they been dismissed in an ODI by a team using only three bowlers. It nearly happened at Eden Park, where – backed by a relentlessly attacking captain – Daniel Vettori, Trent Boult and Tim Southee had Australia at 128 for 9 in 27 overs before Brendon McCullum turned to a fourth bowler to finish the job. Southee brought aggression – if sometimes uncontrolled – at the top, Vettori provided calm when New Zealand could have unraveled, and Boult smashed through the middle and lower order. Australia were shot out in 32.2 overs and New Zealand were going to bat before the scheduled dinner break once again.

McCullum, like he did after New Zealand had dismissed England in 33.2 overs in Wellington, went ballistic. In a blur of boundaries against the speed of Mitchell Johnson and Mitchell Starc, he got to his half-century at a strike-rate of more than 200 – despite a severe blow to the arm – before he fell off his 24th delivery. Nothing is easily achieved against Australia, though, and Starc bowled Ross Taylor and Grant Elliott off successive deliveries either side of the break; New Zealand had lost three wickets for one run and were 79 for 4 in the ninth over.

Much like Vettori was with the ball, Williamson was the soothing balm New Zealand needed with the bat. Had it not been for him, they would have been lost. Williamson was steady while Corey Anderson was harried by Starc during their 52-run stand that took New Zealand within 21 runs of their fourth win in four games this World Cup. Williamson would be tested more before the end.

Anderson slogged Glenn Maxwell and holed out to mid-on, Luke Ronchi managed to put one in the stands before being bounced out by Starc, and Vettori chipped a full toss from Cummins straight to mid-on. Three wickets had fallen in successive overs and New Zealand were 145 for 7, needing only seven more to win.

Williamson made perhaps his only mistake shortly afterwards. Off the second ball of the 23rd over, he pushed a single to mid-on and gave Starc, whose radar was so perfectly tuned, a crack at the tail. Starc sent down two searing yorkers and bowled Adam Milne and Southee. New Zealand were 146 for 9, with Starc on a hat-trick to win it for Australia and Williamson stranded at the wrong end. Boult, however, defended and left the last two Starc deliveries.

With six runs to get and no wickets remaining, Williamson now had the strike against Cummins. So well did he know his timing that he began to celebrate before the ball had cleared the boundary.

For much of the day, until New Zealand collapsed, the crowd had got stuck into Australia because the week leading up to the game had drummed up excitement levels in Auckland. Most of the build-up had centered around the Australian team slightly playing down New Zealand’s demolition of England, and the fans that packed Eden Park were bristling from the onset. As loudly as they cheered on New Zealand at every chance, they booed Australia. And not just David Warner, who sometimes asks for it, but even Michael Clarke, who had spoken so genially about McCullum’s team and country on the eve of the game. They booed incoming batsmen, and send-offs were severe. It was stark contrast to how their team plays its cricket. If New Zealand make it to the MCG on March 29, they should expect retribution.

The match had a high-octane start. Both teams looked nervous. Southee’s first ball was wide outside off stump and yet Aaron Finch chased after it wildly. Southee was then leg-glanced for four and he ended the opening over with a bouncer that sailed over wicketkeeper Ronchi for four byes. Warner top-edged a pull off Boult over third man for six, and Finch deposited Southee into the stands beyond long-on. Though Southee bowled Finch next ball, Australia, in their aggressive gambit to control the game, had racked up 47 in 4.3 overs.

To bring calm, McCullum turned to Vettori in the seventh over and he was iceman to their new-ball mavericks. Bowling with a slip and leg slip inside the fielding restrictions, Vettori varied pace and flight to restrain Australia. Before this game he had conceded only two boundaries in 25.2 overs in this World Cup. Despite the tiny dimensions of Eden Park, Vettori got hit for only two more during a spell of 10-0-41-2.

Australia’s second-wicket partnership had just reached 50, but with momentum flagging Shane Watson heaved Vettori towards one of the longer short boundaries to be caught by Southee at deep square leg off the last ball of the 13th over. McCullum brought back Southee from a different end and he immediately pinned Warner lbw. The crowed booed when Warner reviewed the decision and they went berserk when it was unsuccessful. Two wickets of successive balls that left Australia 80 for 3 was New Zealand’s opening, and they broke the door down.

Vettori had Australia’s future captain Steven Smith caught behind, and the returning current captain Clarke was held by Williamson at short cover off Boult. It was reward for McCullum who had placed two slips and two catchers at cover for Clarke as soon as he came to bat and persisted with them.

It was just before Clarke’s dismissal, however, that Boult had ripped out the middle order. Returning for his second spell in the 18th over, he had both Maxwell and Mitchell Marsh playing on, leaving Australia 97 for 6. Clarke’s dismissal reduced them to 104 for 7 in the 20th over. Boult then ran through his left-arm counterparts Johnson and Starc in a hurry, and Australia got as far as 151 only because Cummins hung around with Brad Haddin for a last-wicket stand of 45.

A target of 152 would have been a breeze against most teams, but not Australia. Though Williamson dragged New Zealand to victory in the most tense of finishes, there remained little to split the two hosts deservedly billed as World Cup favourites.

DAMINDRA DIAS receives prestigious Governor General Award for her work at Progress Career Planning Institute

Posted on 28 February 2015 by TSL

By: Upali Obeyesekere – Editor, The Times of Sri Lanka.

His Excellency the Right Honourable David Johnston, Governor General of Canada, was in Toronto on Wednesday, February 11, 2015, to present the Governor General’s Caring Canadian Award to 19 volunteers who have made a difference within their communities. Created in 1995, the Governor General’s Caring Canadian Award recognizes living Canadians and permanent residents who have made a significant, sustained, unpaid contribution to their community, in Canada or abroad. Often working behind the scenes, these individuals volunteer their time and efforts to help their fellow citizens.

DAMINDRA DIAS of Woodbridge, Ontario was a proud recipient of the Governor General’s Caring Canadian Award at the colourful ceremony. Since 2003, Damindra has been a volunteer at the Progress Career Planning Institute, providing career coaching to individuals seeking meaningful employment. She develops presentations and workshops that equip job seekers with the necessary tools to find work in their respective fields. She also helps individuals with résumé development and interview preparation. Damindra’s ability to help others reach their full potential has been appreciated by many.
Extract of the Governor General’s citation to Damindra Dias reads as follows:

“Volunteers like you are fundamental to the well-being of our country, reflecting the rich diversity of Canada’s people and the many talents and interests which enrich our society. What they have in common are the support they have provided to help their communities at the grassroots level and the positive impact they have on the lives of others, helping to make our neighbourhoods and our nation stronger.
The Governor General’s Caring Canadian Award was created to celebrate such volunteers, who give so much of themselves to others, and to thank them for their contributions. Accordingly, it is my very great pleasure to give you this award, and welcome you to the ranks of Caring Canadians. Thank you for everything you do; you have made your community and our country stronger.”

Description of the award
The award’s emblem represents Canadians who selflessly give of their time and energy to others. The maple leaf symbolizes the people of Canada and their spirit; the heart depicts the open-heartedness of volunteers; and the outstretched hand portrays boundless generosity. The blue and gold colours, which appear on the vice regal flag, indicate the award’s connection with the governor general.

The Caring Canadian Award consists of a certificate and a lapel pin presented to recipients by the governor general or by lieutenant governors, territorial commissioners, mayors or partner organizations.

Damindra is a proud and determined Sri Lankan-born Canadian professional, who, as a passionate business woman of minority, has successfully dismantled many glass ceilings to reach the top of the “Corporate Ladder” at two global giants, The Kellogg Company and The Coca-Cola Company in Canada, USA, Germany and South Asia. A high achiever with a passion for organizational leadership, strategic thinking, and “never say no” attitude has progressed from Accounting Clerk to Corporate Controller, Vice President Finance and Managing Director and CEO.

The Editor and staff of the SriLankan Anchorman congratulates Mrs. Damindra Dias for her dedication and commitment to excellence in volunteering her time, efforts and knowledge to help others and improve the quality of life in the community. Among the thousands of volunteers in Canada, there are those who make exceptional contributions. Damindra Dias has demonstrated extraordinary leadership and helped build diverse, vibrant communities and its people. We commend her for inspiring others and wish her well in all her future endeavours.

WC 2015: Sri Lanka score big to beat Bangladesh and move to No:2 spot in Pool A

Posted on 26 February 2015 by TSL

Tilekeratne Dilshan, Lahiru Thirimanne and Kumar Sangakkara helped Sri Lanka to a mammoth total of 332 for 1 wicket after Angelo Mathews won the toss and elected to bat on a perfect MCC wicket. At the end of the Sri Lanka innings Dilshan was unbeaten with 161 and Sangakkara 105 n.o. Lahiru Thirimanne was the only batsman to be out at 52.

Bangladesh were all out for 240 runs in 47 overs. Lasith Malinga bowled best for 3 wickets/35 runs. Suranga Lakmal and Dilshan grabbed two wickets each.

Dilshan and Sangakkara smashed the Bangladesh bowling to all parts of the ground as they bludgeoned 332/1 after the end of 50 overs. It was a story of Bangladesh’s poor fielding and some brilliant batting from the Sri Lankan top order. Lahiru Thirmanne and Tillakaratne Dilshan started off cautiously, with Thirimanne surviving a couple of dropped chances.

Bangladesh’s fielding slipped away as the match progressed. Thirimanne departed for 52 but Sangakkara joined Dilshan and they carted the bowling to all parts of the ground. Sangakkara was positive from the word go and he scored his 22nd ODI century in his 400th ODI while Dilshan also notched up his 21st century. Bangladesh conceded 115 runs in the final 10 overs and in the process, the duo shattered several records.
•Dilshan smashed a total of 22 boundaries in his knock. It is the most by a batsman in an innings in the World Cup, going past the mark of 21 boundaries hit by Stephen Fleming when he hit 134* against South Africa in Johannesburg in 2003.
•Dilshan (161*) notched up his highest score in ODIs. It was his third 150-plus score in ODIs. His previous two scores were 160 and both came against India.
•Sangakkara became the first player to score a century in his 400th ODI. He reached the hundred off 73 balls, his fastest century ever. It was his first at the MCG.
•The unbeaten 210-run stand for the second wicket is the best ever for Sri Lanka in World Cups. The previous best for Sri Lanka was 170 between Sanath Jayasuriya and Hashan Tillakaratne against New Zealand in Bloemfontein in 2003.
•Sri Lanka’s innings featured a total of 37 fours and just one six in the entire innings. The only time there was such a big gap between fours and sixes for Sri Lanka was in 1975 against Australia at the Oval in which they hit 37 fours and no sixes.

Milestone: Dilshan and Sangakkara give Sri Lankans plenty to smile

Kumar Sangakkara scored a century in his 400th ODI off just 73 balls. It is the fastest century that he has ever scored and it is his first century at the MCG. It is his 22nd overall. At the other end, Dilshan scored his third 150-plus score in ODIs.

Update: Sri Lanka go past 300

Sri Lanka continued the onslaught on Bangladesh as they notched up their 300 in the 48th over. Sangakkara is on the cusp of a century while Dilshan is closing in on his 150.

Update: Sri Lanka cut loose

Bangladesh have lost the plot as they leak plenty of runs in the death overs. Dilshan takes a liking to Taskin Ahmed as he smashes him for four boundaries in the over. The last five overs have already leaked 57 runs.

Update: One more fielding lapse

Yup! You guessed it. Another fielding chance is fluffed by the Bangladesh fielders. Sangakkara works it to the leg side and he is half-way down the track. Dilshan sends him back late and the fielder collects the ball. Sangakkara turns back and Anamul Haque, the fielder waits, waits, waits and waits. He decides to fire the throw but cannot hit the stumps and they end up getting the run. Bangladesh fans will be wanting to turn the TV off.

Update: Another dropped catch and more misery

Alright, this is official. Bangladesh cannot catch to save their lives. Kumar Sangakkara cuts the first ball off Rubel Hossain’s second spill but Mominul Haque spilled a chance. In order to redeem himself, he tries to run-out Dilshan but the bowler is not backing up. On top of that, the fielder who is backing up is not paying attention to the game and ends up getting to the ball late. 15 runs came in poor Rubel’s eighth over. Anything that can go wrong is going wrong. There was a touch of irony too

Milestone: Dilshan century powers SL

Tillakaratne Dilshan joined in the fun by scoring his 21st ODI century and his fourth against Bangladesh. The moment was a bit anti-climatic though as he charged down the track to a flighted delivery but the ball took the inside edge and went past the stumps. Bangladesh are looking clueless.

Milestone: Sangakkara makes it count in his 400th ODI

It has already been a day of milestones for Sangakkara. At the start of the day, he was playing his 400th ODI and he made the occasion even special by notching up his 94th ODI fifty off 45 balls. It is his seventh against Bangladesh and the Lions are punishing the Tigers at the G. He is now two behind Sachin Tendulkar’s mark of 96 fifties, which is the most in ODIs.

Update: Sri Lanka march on in the Batting Powerplay

Sangakkara and Dilshan continued to flay the bowling to all parts of the MCG as they smashed 34 runs in the Batting Powerplay. Things are getting difficult for Bangladesh as they stare at a huge total in front of them.

Update: Bangladesh’s fielding woes continue

It looks like Bangladesh’s fielders have applied plenty of butter in their hands today. So many chances are being dropped. Taskin Ahmed the culprit this time as he drops Sangakkara on 23 off his own bowling. Sri Lanka will be really looking to capitalize now.

Update: Batting Powerplay taken

With Dilshan looking in great touch and Kumar Sangakkara looking in fine touch, Sri Lanka smartly decided to take the Batting Powerplay. After 32 overs, Sri Lanka are in a great position at 162/1.

Wicket: Thirimanne’s charmed life ends

Thirimanne already had survived three times and one felt that it was going to be his day. However, his luck ran out and he departed for 52. Rubel Hossain bowls a short delivery outside off and Thirimanne arches back to ramp it to third man. The ball hits the middle and it flies to third man where Taskin Ahmed leans forward to take the catch.

Lahiru Thirimanne c Taskin Ahmed b Rubel Hossain 52 (78)

Milestone: Thirimanne also gets to fifty

After surviving three chances, Thirimanne finally notched up his fifty off 74 balls. It is his 12th in ODIs and his first against Bangladesh. Sri Lanka are looking ominous.

Update: Thirimanne continues to survive

He was dropped on 0 by Anamul Haque at slip off Mashraffe Mortaza in the first match. He was again missed by slip and now he survives a missed stumping on 44. Bangladeshi fans will be feeling pretty frustrated by this performance.

Milestone: Dilshan fifty propels Sri Lanka

Tillakaratne Dilshan fell for a golden duck in the match against Afghanistan in Dunedin but he made amends in this match. He notched up his 43rd ODI fifty and his third against Bangladesh. Sri Lanka were looking ominous at 103/0 after 21 overs.

Update: Sri Lanka openers make solid start

Drinks at the MCG and things are not looking good for Bangladesh. Thirimanne is hanging in there while Dilshan is looking comfortable out in the middle. At drinks, Sri Lanka are 76/0 after 16 overs.

Team update: 50 up for Sri Lanka

After a steady start, Sri Lanka brought up their 50 in the 10th over. Bangladesh have been sloppy so far, with Lahiru Thirimanne getting a reprieve twice off Mortaza. The running between the wickets has also been sloppy. Thirimanne is like a cat today, surviving plenty of times but Bangladesh are not helping themselves with their poor fielding.

Update: Poor start by Taskin Ahmed

Taskin Ahmed replaced Rubel Hossain and he got off to a poor start as Tillakaratne Dilshan smashed him for two boundaries. 12 runs were conceded in the first over by Taskin and Sri Lanka are making a move on.

Update: Steady bowling from Mashrafe, poor from Rubel

Mashrafe Moratza has settled into a good rhythm and is bowling a wonderful line and length. His spell so far reads: 4-0-8-0. On the other hand, Rubel Hossain has struggled for control and has already conceded five wides. His spell reads 3-0-20-0. Rubel is replaced by Taskin Ahmed. Sri Lanka are 28/0 after seven overs.

Fan following: MCG becomes a sea of green and blue

Melbourne has a large contingent of Bangladesh and Sri Lanka expatriate fans. Both of them came out in full support for this match, which is vital for both teams.

Catch dropped: Anamul Haque drops a sitter

Drama in the first over. Mashrafe Mortaza, bowling a lovely line outside the off stump, induces the edge from Lahiru Thirimanne and it flies to widish first slip. Anamul Haque, juggles not once, not twice but four times but he puts the chance down. That would have been a great start for Bangladesh but they fluff it. Poor batting though from Thirimanne.

Stat: Sangakkara joins the 400 club

Kumar Sangakkara was the latest entrant into the 400 club in ODIs. He was featuring in his 400th ODI today at the MCG and he is the fourth player after Sachin Tendulkar (463), Sanath Jayasuriya (445) and Mahela Jayawardene (444) to have reached this mark.

Toss: Sri Lanka won the toss and opt to bat

Sri Lanka skipper Angelo Mathews opted to bat first saying that the pitch is really good and they want to make first use of it. The team made one change, with Dinesh Chandimal replacing Jeevan Mendis, who has been ruled out of the tournament with a hamstring injury. Bangladesh made no changes to their team.

Bangladesh (Playing XI): Anamul Haque, Tamim Iqbal, Soumya Sarkar, Mahmudullah, Shakib Al Hasan, Mominul Haque, Mushfiqur Rahim(w), Sabbir Rahman, Mashrafe Mortaza(c), Rubel Hossain, Taskin Ahmed

Sri Lanka (Playing XI): Lahiru Thirimanne, Tillakaratne Dilshan, Kumar Sangakkara(w), Dimuth Karunaratne, Mahela Jayawardene, Angelo Mathews(c), Dinesh Chandimal, Thisara Perera, Rangana Herath, Lasith Malinga, Suranga Lakmal

Build-up: Sri Lanka, Bangladesh look to build momentum

Sri Lanka and Bangladesh clash in a crucial Pool A fixture with both teams looking to take a decisive step towards the tournament knock-outs. Thus far, Sri Lanka’s World Cup hasn’t gone according to plan. They were beaten by co-hosts New Zealand in the tournament opener before being given an almighty scare by the resilient Afghans. Injuries haven’t helped either. They’ve been forced to replace an injured Jeevan Mendis with Upul Tharanga. Captain Angelo Mathews has called for a more cohesive performance from the team.

Bangladesh meanwhile, by virtue of their washed-out game against Australia, Bangladesh find themselves above Sri Lanka in the table. They’ll look to capitalize on Sri Lanka’s slow start to the tournament by springing a surprise victory over their much fancied opponent.
