There has been no clarity yet on India and Bangladesh’s proposed tours of Sri Lanka in July and August, but that has not dented the working of Dabrera.

“We are working at all venues simultaneously and keeping grounds, wickets and stadiums ready with all necessary requirements.”

The 56-year-old Dabrera is finding some difficulties in the current Corona situation but managing somehow.  “Yes, we face problems in getting labors to do work but somehow managing with the limited men-power,” he added further.

“I have a special curfew pass and in last two months I have visited Galle International Stadium (Galle), Sooriyawewa International Cricket Stadium (Hambantota), Pallekele International Cricket Stadium (Kandy), Rangiri Dambulla International Stadium (Dambulla) and R.Premadasa Stadium Khettarama, Colombo,” he concluded.
