WHAT'S TAMIL EELAM

Tamil people of Sri Lanka (formerly called Ceylon by the British, and Eelam by the Tamils) live predominantly on the north and east of the island. They also live in other parts of the island and all over the world as a diaspora. The Tamil community shares a common history, tradition, culture, language, sense of homeland - and a love of cricket.

In the words of emerging artist Kaber Vasuki கேபர் வாசுகி, "Ulagathin Sondhakaran" for Tamil Eelam Cricket, produced by Tiburtius V Rubin from Tilla Production.
