SRI LANKA, Colombo, 30 January 2003 : Sri Lankan skipper Sanath Jayasuriya (R) walks in front of school children waving national flags in the capital Colombo at a send-off for the national team before the 2003 ICC Cricket World Cup. Sri Lanka's players were locked in a bitter pay dispute before agreeing to take part in the World Cup and saw the acrimonious pay battle hurt their national ratings. © AFP/SENA VIDANAGAMA.
