Meet the girls' cricket team from Elahera! (Pics) Featured

A girls' cricket team from the Elahera Jayasiripura Kanishta Vidyalaya, in Polonnaruwa, has registered for this year's inter-school women's Under-19 cricket tournament.

The highly enthusiastic team is going strong, despite facing much hardships.

Although the school does have a small ground, the team lacks a pitch, matting or equipment. They are currently making do with sports gear borrowed from a sports club in the area, which are too big for them.

However, even these are blessings for the team and the results of the dedication of their coach.

The efforts and dreams of this team would take wings to soar to greater heights if these young players would be granted a cricket pitch under the programe of the Sports State minister to renovate school sports grounds as well as a matting and proper equipment through the Polonnaruwa district cricket association.
