Global Economic Crisis Hits Sri Lankan Cricket

Yes, the "Global Economic Crisis" has hit the Sri Lankan Cricket. This doesn't have to do any thing with the current form of Sri Lankan Cricket team which I guess result of long seasons of low quality cricket and restless back to back series. :-(

The Dilmah the main sponsors of Sri Lankan Cricket team haven't renewed its sponsorship mainly due to current global financial situation. Dialog Telekom has stepped up as the main sponsor but only temporally. Dialog is not very bold enough to make such a large investment. So Dialog Telekom will be the main sponsors of the Sri Lankan Cricket team at least for the three back to back ODIs against Pakistan. In the mean time MAS Holdings will continue its sponsorship till the end of the deal which falls on March 2009.
