Honouring greats of yesteryear Sobers and Tissera

Seldom do Sri Lanka cricketers of the pre-Test era gain the recognition they deserve for the contributions they have made to the game. Unlike in today’s context figures don’t reveal to what extent these players have made their mark and the impact they had made on the sport.

Never saw either of these two yesteryear greats in action unfortunately but Sorbers was once upon a time a SL coach if I recall right. If there is another person a trophy needs to be named after look no furhter past Gamini Dissanayeke. Not many of us know the work this great servant of SLC did (note servant of SLC as opposed to current day looters) in them days to get where SL is today AND of course he didnt do it for the money!
