The Netball Federation of Sri Lanka (NFSL) has announced the 12-player squad for the upcoming 2019 Netball World Cup which will be held in Liverpool in July.
After a successful year of competition………….
The Sri Lanka Netball Squad was approved by the Minister of Sports Harin Fernando. NFSL has retained almost the same squad that became the undisputed Champions at the Asian Netball Championship in 2018 with the exception of one player. The only change being Deepika Darshani replacing Sureka Gamage.
- Will the fund-less Sports Ministry be of any assistance for Netball WC?
- Malaysia champions; Sri Lanka finish third
The team will be captained by Chathurangi Jayasooriya, who led Sri Lanka to the Asian Championship, with Thilaka Jinadasa as the Head Coach.
