The brother of the late Australian spinner Shane Warne, who arrived with his wife Shay in Sri Lanka on Friday (at around 6 am) was "disappointed" with the early finish of the first Test match, which was being dedicated to Shane.
Speaking exclusively over the telephone from Galle, he said, "I am happy that Australia won the Test but disappointed it finished just before we got to the ground. We are very disappointed regarding the early finish because we were meant to be Friday afternoon and Saturday".
"Fortunately we got to the ground and it was amazing to see the displays they have erected for the match. It is truly humbling to see the amount of respect being shown to my brother in Sri Lanka".
"Sri Lanka is a wonderful country full of great people", he further added.
The commemoration gathering, which was likely to be hosted by the authorities on Sunday, is rearranged by a day and both teams are invited at the Jetwing Hotel on Saturday evening, it is learnt.
