“Once upon a time”

by Desmond Kelly – ‘the Star of eLanka”

Sri Lanka seems destined to engage in yet another mix up of priorities. Since independence in 1948, the country has been grappling with constitutions or major changes to administrative regulations and not economic priorities. The result has been that a country that was more economically advanced at one time than subsequent Tiger economies like Singapore and Malaysia, has sled back to where it was decades ago.

I have been asked to write an article about my cricketing journey from Colombo to Melbourne..

I have some reservations about how relevant my article will be. However, I trust that it will serve essentially as an insight to the exhilarating schoolboy cricketing era of the 1950s.

I debuted for Royal in ’54 and captained in ’57.

That is what we NEED right now in Australia. Some Bloody “breaking news”. Now that the little “rocket-man” has gone a.bit quiet, President Trump is concentrating more on “Presiding” rather than “sacking’ or “tweeting”, President Putin is “putting-in” more time at the “Russian” Parliment instead of just “rushing” out to confront Trump, Channel 10, in Melbourne is concentrating on some woman who “bared her boobs” for whatever reason, and Shane Warne being the next “bachelor”(all very interesting news, but, at the same time, a lot of rubbish), we DO need something that can stir the lethargy in our brains.
