Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) felicitated two renowned cricket umpires — Mr. D.N. Pathirana and Mrs. K.R.P. Doolwala — who retired from officiating duties after a service of over 20 years. Both Mr. Pathirana and female umpire Mrs. Doolwala, were presented with mementos and a cash reward at a simple ceremony held at the SLC Headquarters in Maitland Place.

Mr. Pathirana served as a leading umpire from 1982 to 2006 in the domestic circuit, and has officiated 30 One Day International matches in addition to appearing in 8 Test matches as a reserve umpire.

Mrs. Doolwala was a former Sri Lanka women’s player, who took up to umpiring after her playing days and served as an umpire for over two decades.

At the time of her retirement she was a Sara Trophy qualified umpire at SLC. Mr. Pathirana and Mrs. Doolwala were presented with cash awards at the occasion organised by SLC Umpires’ Committee Chairman, Deepal Madurapperuma and SLC Head of Domestic Cricket, Chinthaka Edirimanne.
