Dasun Shanaka postpones his big day wedding
Had the world not come to a standstill due to COVID-19, Sri Lanka all-rounder Dasun Shanaka would have had his wedding on Wednesday.
According to the highly placed sources close to the team management, the 28-year-old Dasun was scheduled to marry on May 13.
“Yes, because of the coronavirus it has been indefinitely postponed. The decision was taken a few days ago. The new date will be decided later,”
the source speaking exclusively, said.
“Dasun and other team members of the Sinhalese Sports Club (SSC) have begun on line practice and the club captain has made a special video clip in Sinhala to guide and discuss the team preparations with his colleagues,” a senior member of the club said.
Dasun, however, is not the only international cricketer being in this tricky situation.
South Africa’s slow left arm orthodox bowler Keshav Maharaj was due to tie knot with his fiancee Lerisha earlier this month but they had to postpone their big day with the ban on social gatherings still in place in South Africa.
Also eight Australia cricketers including Australia’s limited-overs spinner Adam Zampa, all-rounder Glenn Maxwell and D’Arcy Short, no. 1 Test bowler in world Pat Cummins and T20 specialist pacer Andrew Tye all forced to delay their weddings.
