Lal Wickramatunga was a Benedictine cricketer who could mix it with or best in his halcyon days and thereafter served as a police officer. He was a servant of the Board of Control for Sri Lanka Cricket in the 1990s. He helped run The Sunday Leader after his elder brother Lasantha was assassinated in January 2009. He moved to Australia in diplomatic and consular capacities in recent times. His popularity among the Sri Lankans in Sydney is indelibly etched in the pictorial illustrations presented in OZLANKA. May he bat on …… and on …. wherever he plants his feet.

Fare thee well Lal.
