Thilan Walallawita granted British Citizenship

Middlesex’s Thilan Walallawita, who narrowly escaped a devastating tsunami as a boy in Sri Lanka, has been granted British citizenship, the English county announced Tuesday.
His change in status will soon see the 23-year-old left-arm spinner registered as a local cricketer, which means his selection will no longer be governed by rules restricting the use of overseas players in the English domestic game.
