As per their instructions, I had to control my food intake and get used to a healthy diet.
Even though we got food three times a day, it was a special task to take it to a certain measure.8 liters of water should have been drunk a day. It was a big challenge in the beginning, but it had to be done in order for my body to change and overcome the challenge I was looking forward to.In the beginning it became a big challenge, but I was able to experience the results of my hard work and dedication day by day.

Maintaining physical fitness My exercise coach is Gayan Perera. Without his guidance I would not have achieved these achievements. Manoj Mukunda trained how to face a competition to get the stage in a competition and he should also remember this time.
Say something about your brother Sujeewa de Silva, a former Test cricketer who represented the national team, and you might have tried to follow in his footsteps..
My brother represented the national team from 2002 to 2007…..He is a person who has made countless commitments for the sport. I learned from him that dedication is not impossible for those who have determination and self-confidence.
