When Sri Lankan Cricket star, Thilakarathna Dilshan established the best score by a Sri Lankan with his bat at Lords, a traditional dancing group of Sri Lankans set up a new record in the ground. The new captain set up a new record of 193 runs by becoming the Sri Lankan Cricketer to score the highest at Lords Ground in England. Earlier this record belonged to Sidath Weththamuni. It was a moment of bringing dual record performance at Lords by Sri Lankans for the first time in UK. This traditional dancing group was brought to the event under the patronage of Sri Lanka tourism promotions in United Kingdom during the second test match between England and Sri Lanka. They performed their traditional dancing art in the middle of Lords Ground in front of 28,0000 cricket fans. We as Sri Lankans consider this opportunity as an honor to Sri Lanka, as Lord's ground is considered as "Home of Cricket". Following is the video of the event where our traditional dancers were able to share our culture with the British crowd. We hope this will be helpful in promoting Sri Lanka tourism. We thank Tissa Madawela for sharing this video with the world.
