22 August, 2021

Sri Lanka will be represented by six players at the Asian Table Tennis Championship that will take place in Doha, Qatar from September 28 to October 5.

This was confirmed by the Table Tennis Association of Sri Lanka (TTASL).

Sri Lanka will send three men and three women paddlers with one official according to the TTASL. Names of these paddlers will be sent to the Sports Ministry to obtain approval in due course.

The Ministry will also meet the expenses of the tour party but if any other player wishes to take part they will have to meet the expenses out of their own funds according to the TTASL.

The Sunday Observer learns that veteran woman paddler Ishara Madurangi will be the captain of the women’s team and will also act as the lady chaperon. The men’s team will be led by Sri Lanka’s leading player in Senura Silva and will include Chameera Ginige and Milinda Lakshitha. However, their approval is yet to be obtained.
