The Speaker told the team members that following the 1996 Cricket World Cup, this victory was the most important sporting achievement in all these years. A special reward was granted to Nishantha Fernando who represented Sri Lanka in 2008, 2016 and 2018 in international Carrom competitions, while wining the World Championship in 2012.
