Sri Lankan Prison Department have expressed their desire to play the match.
“Cricket is a common factor between India and Sri Lanka. Lankan prison officials have conveyed to us the idea of conducting the cricket matches. If everything goes as planned, one match will be held between Kerala’s prisoners and Lankan prison officials. The next will be the jail officials of Kerala and Sri Lanka,” said Poojappura Central Jail Superintendent S Santhosh to PTI.
Prison authorities are planning to conduct a camp for prisoners at the open prison at Nettukaltheri to identify potential talent. If the sources are to be believed, this match is expected to happen at the Sports Hub Trivandrum. if that’s not the case they might choose Medical College Ground or even St Xavier’s College ground.
