Tribute to Mahela Jayawardhene
Jayawardena was one of the elite Sri Lankan cricketers who was considered as one of the magnets in the international arena and most of all one of the best paragons of Mother Nalanda. The Old Nalandians’ honored him and bestow on him a supreme send-off befitting such a worthy gentleman at the final test match of his career at the SSC grounds on 14th - 18th August.
