Sri Lanka’s first Test captain passes away
He was 68 at the time of his demise.
He captained Sri Lanka’s first Test match, and also faced the first delivery and scored the first run for his team.
He captained Sri Lanka in all the Tests he played, although he could not lead his team to victory in any of them.
However, Sri Lanka won the first ODI match he captained. He has scored one half-century in ODI cricket.
