According to a press release issued by the university here on Tuesday, Roshan Mahanama, a prolific scorer, also a former ICC official, and the wicket-keeper batsman Romesh Kaluwitharana, both members of the 1996 World Cup winning team, were guests of honour, and in a question answer session, they spoke of Sri Lankan cricket. They also displayed some memorabilia of the 1996 World Cup with signatures of team members.
