Full text of the message:

I am pleased to send this message of greetings to our Cricket Team participating in the 11th ICC World Cup.

We are among the winners of the World Cup together with India, Pakistan, Australia, West Indies and England, where cricket originated.

Our cricketers stand high in the world of cricket bringing pride to the country, and glory to the game of cricket, due to their skills.

While we have cricketers who can give a good challenge to other teams, I believe the most important thing is to play in keeping with the spirit of this gentlemen’s game, and face all challenges with courage and sportsmanship.

I wish you every success in your efforts to bring the World Cup to our country again!
