Ranatunga: Coaches should build teams, not win at any cost

Sri Lanka’s World Cup-winning captain Arjuna Ranatunga will grace the 43rd Observer SLT Mobitel School Cricketers of the Year grand awards ceremony to be held at the BMICH, Colombo on December 14, commencing at 5.15 pm.

More than any of the past top award winners, Ranatunga has maintained a strong affiliation with the oldest and only uninterrupted schools awards ceremony ever since he first won the highest award way back in 1980 – some 41 years ago.

He became the Observer Schoolboy Cricketer for the second time in his final year for Ananda College in 1982. Since then, Ranatunga has made it a habit to be at the Mega Show whenever possible, irrespective of who the chief guest is.

Apart from Ranatunga, his whole family too – wife Samadara, son Dhyan and daughter Thiyangie have witnessed most of the Observer Schoolboy Cricketer award shows.
