The Tamil Union Cricket and Athletic Club which has been in existence since 1899 has been inextricably linked with the heritage of cricket in Sri Lanka.
On 23 August the club plans to make this link even stronger with the presentation of the 1st Golden Oval award to Muthiah Muralidaran for his achievements and contribution towards Sri Lankan cricket.
The event is scheduled to be held at the Oak Room of the Cinnamon Grand Hotel and would be a formal event with Sri Lanka s leading cricketing luminaries in attendance.
Murali has been playing for Tamil Union since leaving school, and presently holds the record of the most number of one day and test match wickets.
He is also currently the Vice Captain of the Sri Lanka Cricket Team.For further details contact CEO, Lionel Almeida on 2693006 / 0722435654
