That's great that the board doing this.
In the last week and bit I heard from an ex cricketer who didn't play international cricket only first class cricket in Sri Lanka and was faced with some hardships both financially and health-wise and I was pleasantly happy and surprised to hear him say the board (SLC) assisted him greatly and covered a lot of costs

As usual, They have missed most prominent down-south prominent veterans like D. H. De Silva, Douglas Dias Jayasinha - Chairman Selection Committee Sri Lanka Cricket (1963–1973)
