Later, speaking exclusively, the winner said, "I received a text mesage to my mobile phone requesting to make a donation to the "Foundation for Goodness and Action for Good" which I believed was for a worthy cause.

I had no idea even if I would be chosen as a winner for this trip to India. I only wanted to send some money for this cause.

Three days later, I received a call from a lady from the foundation that I had been chosen for this trip to watch the IPL match".

"I shared this with my wife and we were not sure how to react to this call. We are yet in shock as to how blessed we are to be chosen.We had to make a hard decision as both our sons are IPL enthusiasts and were insisting that they needed to join us.

We finally agreed that my wife will join us this time and we all (Amrit,

Keshika and Ashwin) will come back to India soon with the family".

"I met Mahela some 15 years back. I would like to tell Mahela how much I value the work he is doing for the country and also how proud I am that he is coaching the Mumbai Indians Team".

The family has been watching the IPL matches on TV.

"I am so proud and happy to be part of their good work and would love to assist them in any way I can in the future".

"This is a wonderful opportunity for us and i wish to thank the "Foundation for Goodness" and the management, for organising such wonderful events and also for the super work they are doing with the community in Sri Lanka.

I was extremely pleased with the Board and the work they do at present.

I am so proud and happy to be part of their good work and would love to assist them in any way I can, In the future",

Earl Kamalaneson concluded. The couple has no plan to extend the stay after the match.
