“Sri Lankan Fans Take a Bow” By S. Skandakumar

The recent support and solidarity of our cricket fans throughout the T20 and One Day series, that inspired our youthful national team to great heights may well go down in history as unprecedented. The fact that it came at the most challenging time ever in their own personal lives spoke volumes for their love for the game and our talented youth.

Their sincere acknowledgement of the role of Australia in the advancement of our cricket since attaining Test status in 1982, reflected a nation’s gratitude. As we struggle out of the worst-ever economic crisis experienced since Independence, let us together usher in a new era, and embrace the values that have made Australia the nation it is, through equality, mutual respect, and the rigid application of the Rule of Law where no one is above it.

May God bless our beautiful country and all her people.

The writer was the Assistant Secretary of Sri Lanka Cricket in 1982-1988, Secretary in 1989-1992, Vice Chairman

/Secretary First Interim Committee in 1999-2000, and

Sri Lanka’s High Commissioner to Australia in 2015-2019.

James Webb telescope reveals the universe as we’ve never seen it before

The James Webb Space Telescope, the most powerful observatory to be placed in orbit, has revealed the “deepest and sharpest infrared image of the early universe” ever taken, going back 13 billion years, NASA said. At first glance, the first image from NASA’s new James Webb Space Telescope may not seem all that remarkable. But in reality, what appears to be tiny specks in space are actually galaxies — billions of years old. “If you held a grain of sand on the tip of your finger at arms length, that is the part of the universe you are seeing — just one little speck of the universe,” NASA Administrator Bill Nelson said of the image.
