Sir Ian Botham embarks on daring walk for Sri Lanka

English cricket legend, Sir Ian Botham has confirmed that he is embarking on his most daring walk ever – all in aid of raising funds for sport in Sri Lanka. ‘Beefy’ whose love for Sri Lanka has matured ever since he first arrived here for the first test that Sri Lanka played, at the Sara Stadium..

This is great work by Botham and he has done alot of it for other causes. We wish him well and hope more poeple get involved to make the event a success. I am also not sure if the press can refer to him is Beefy - the guy is knighted and thus must be referred to as Sir 'officially'.

I still wonder why the folks who funded millions for the guns that kept the tigers going do not now support the rebuilding and of course sports. How come a guy from England has to come and raise funds for a sports academy when the so called supporters who funded guns do nothing!

@Stormy, Actually those who funded terrorism need not sponsor sports in north. The least they can is come and do the demining. But will anyone have such dignity?
