David Peever, the Cricket Australia chairman, has delivered a pointed message to nations opposing proposed changes to the structure of international cricket - tradition must not stand in the way of progress.Speaking at the official banquet to mark Australias series in Sri Lanka on Tuesday night, Peever stressed the importance of keeping the game relevant and balancing tradition with progress. Sri Lanka Cricket and its president Thilanga Sumathipala have been outspoken critics of the proposal for two-tier Test cricket and radical changes to the games financial model.There is no better community of people than the cricket community. But I have to say I think in terms of responsibility and the place that cricket needs to hold globally today and tomorrow, Peever said. I do respect traditions but am conscious of not loving them at the expense of progress. Progress and tradition, in our view, need to have at least equal weighting.Cricket is the peoples game. Without fans it would have little value or relevance. Fans provide the money for us to sustain the game, to invest in the pathways, to help us support the grass roots. We have to always be guided by what they want, but also continuing to stay ahead of the curve and keep the game relevant, in all parts of our society. We need to continue to be a sport of choice for all, men women, boys and girls and girls of all backgrounds all over the world.Since replacing Wally Edwards as the CA chairman, Peever has kept a low profile, but his words at the dinner marked a statement of intent, even as he sat next to Sumathipala. The pair are expected to hold further talks over the next two days, with SLCs opposition to ICC reforms likely to be a major topic for discussion. The ICC chairman Shashank Manohar is believed to desire any constitutional and structural change to be approved by unanimous vote.Sri Lanka Cricket has decided not to support two-tier Test cricket as we have decided its detrimental to SLC and for its future, Sumathipala said last month. We feel that to make it a top seven - you are virtually relegating the bottom three to a different level.Among other topics in a wide-ranging address, Peever pointed towards day-night Tests as a major reform, and thanked Australias cricketers for taking part in the inaugural pink ball match in Adelaide last year. At the same time he admitted the concept needs some further refinement.In Australia recently we embarked on innovation in our last season and held our inaugural day-night Test in Adelaide, he said. We did this to encourage more fans to the game, both watching at home and attending the ground at times when it fits their lifestyle, to make the game more accessible to fans.We do accept the concept needs some further refinement, and I want to thank the New Zealand, Pakistan and South Africa players and their boards for helping us with this important reform. In particular I want to thank our Australian players for the way they have helped lead this change in putting the long term health of the game first. Theyre leading change in a way that was similarly led back in the World Series Cricket era.Peever also argued that international cricket had to be maintained as the games pinnacle, rather than allowing further erosion of contests between nations by domestic Twenty20 leagues. Were very lucky in cricket that we have three viable formats of the game, he said.T20 cricket is enticing kids and families to become fans, and I want to take the opportunity to stress here the importance and primacy of international cricket to continue nourishing the game. Money is fundamental to our game, but it has to follow strategy and not the other way round.

Sri Lankan wicketkeeper-batsman Niroshan Dickwella credited his teams seamers for holding their nerve against a big-hitting West Indian lower order after Sri Lanka pulled off a one-run win to secure their place in the final of the Zimbabwe tri-series. Dickwella was one of two Sri Lankans to reach the 90s in a total of 330 for 7 before Sri Lanka held West Indies to 329 for 9 in reply.Our bowlers held their nerve, and our fast bowlers did really well, Dickwella said. Suranga [Lakmal], [Nuwan] Kulasekara and Nuwan Pradeep - they were the key players in defending this total. We were confident of defending the score, with our bowling attack. We missed some opportunities that we should have capitalized on, but fortunately we were on the winning side on the end.Evin Lewis, the West Indies opener, survived two early lbw shouts and was also dropped twice during the first Powerplay in an uncharacteristically sloppy fielding effort by Sri Lanka. Lewis was dropped again off a tough chance at mid-on before he had reached fifty, and he went on to score a maiden hundred. He might have been run out shortly thereafter, but Dickwella disturbed the stumps with his glove before collecting the ball.That was one of his few lapses in the field or with the bat - after his 94 in the morning he eventually ran Lewis out for 148 - to increase Sri Lankas advantage at the death. Dickwella then held on to an awkward inside edge off Ashley Nurses bat in the penultimate over of the match.It is kind of a challenge [batting up the order and keeping wicket], but you just have to adapt to the situation, and play according to that, Dickwella saidd.dddddddddddd Im a wicketkeeper-batsman, and when I score runs when were batting first, I still have to keep wicket for 50 overs. Obviously I have to do that, for my team.Batting at No. 3, Dickwella was at the crease in the third over of the match and fell 36 overs later just six runs short of what would have been a maiden ODI hundred in his fifth match.It was a good track, he said. Since the morning, it was a flat track. There was a bit of grass, but it was dead grass, so we didnt expect it to move a lot. We thought it would move a bit, but that didnt happen.It was coming on to the bat. It was a pretty easy wicket to bat on, compared to the previous games. I could have got a hundred, and scored some more runs for the team, but Im really happy with my performance today.Performances such as these will help Dickwella state his claim for a spot in Sri Lankas touring party for their trip to South Africa in December. He is one of a number of fringe players who have come in to Sri Lankas squad in the absence of injured senior players such as Angelo Mathews and Dinesh Chandimal.Some of the senior players back in Sri Lanka, Angelo Mathews and Chandimal, theyre recovering. Theyve started training again. The selectors must be picking up some juniors from this tour for the big upcoming tour, so this is a good opportunity for the juniors to perform and show them that we are good, talented players. This is a good opportunity to play, perform and win even if we dont have those seniors with us.
