A TRIANGULAR CRICKET TOURNAMENT 2017 - AMONG SRI LANKAN ESTABLISHMENTS IN CHENNAI

A Triangular Cricket Tournament was jointly organized by the Deputy High Commission of Sri Lanka in Chennai with the Bank of Ceylon Chennai and the SriLankan Airlines, Chennai on 30th July 2017 at the Madras Christian College School Ground in Chennai along with the staff and family members of the Home-Based and Local Recruited Staff, which was covered by the local media.

In his welcome speech as the Chief Guest, Deputy High Commissioner Mr. V. Krishnamoorthy highlighted the history of M.J. Gopalan Trophy, which was an annual first-class cricket competition played between Ceylon (now Sri Lanka) and Madras (now Tamil Nadu) between 1952-1953 and 2007-2008 stating that the idea of the competition came about with the starting of a silver jubilee fund in 1952 to celebrate M.J. Gopalan's 25 years as a cricket and hockey player.

Further, he invited SriLankan Airlines and Bank of Ceylon to establish their counters, in accordance with the vision of Hon. Ravi Karunanayake, Minister of Foreign Affairs, in the existing pavilions at the chancery premises of the Sri Lanka Deputy High Commission.
