ECONOMYNEXT – Dialog Axiata, sponsor of the national team said it teamed up with Sri Lanka Telecom to launch an online portal to help fans boost the island’s team which is competing in the Asia Cup T20 finals.
The portal can be accessed via a QR (Quick Response) code or by logging on to https://dlg.lk/apekollo to submit a wish to the cricket team.
“A campaign such as this gives a much-needed boost to the morale of the country and indeed the morale of the players,” Chryshantha Kapuwatte, Asst. Secretary of Sri Lanka Cricket said.
Sri Lanka qualified for the grand finale by defeating favourites, India and the upcoming Afghanistan team.
Sri Lanka last won the Asia Cup in 2014 under Captain Angelo Mathews by beating Pakistan.
Sri Lanka will again face Pakistan in the finals this year.
The finals will be played on giant screens at CR&FC and CH&FC Grounds in Colombo, Sanath Jayasuriya Grounds in Matara, Gatambe Ground in Kandy, Rajanganaya Ground in Anuradhapura and Kalai Mathi Sports Club Ground in Jaffna. (Colombo/Sept09/2022)
