Victorious SL team at Galle Face
The triumphant Sri Lankan cricketers were yesterday (08) accorded a rousing reception by delirious fans as they touched down at Bandaranaike International Airport here after winning the World Twenty20 crown with the highlight being a victory parade on a decked-up double-decker bus.

Later on they participated in a special event organized at Galle Face Green, which also saw the participation of Percy Abeysekara, Sri Lanka's renowned cricket cheerleader who has been cheering for the team even when it secured the World Cup in 1996.

However, it was significant that the Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) authorities were not seen at the occasion.

Following the event, the team left the location to attend a special party organized by the President.
