Mahela cheering for his golf team at the Golf Premier League


Mahela Jayawardene may not be hanging up his cricket boots any time soon but he is surely planning his sporting interests beyond the bat. He is supporting a brand new golf league in India. On the lines of the cricket IPL, the new-format golf tournament is set to get underway tomorrow at the Aamby Valley Golf Course. Also a keen golfer himself, Jayawardene will be sponsoring a four-member team called the Colombo Sixers. Call it a case of business on the greens as Shiv Kapur – the architect of this league – got Jayawardene on board while he was out playing a pro-am with the cricketer.
