Sri Lanka ruggerite Imran Bisthamin seriously injured

Sri Lanka and Kandy Sports Club crack No. 8 Imran Bisthamin had a fall from a concrete slab and sustained serious head and spinal injuries on Saturday close to midnight in Kandy.

He was rushed to Kandy General Hospital where an emergency operation lasting over five hours was performed to save his life. He is now lying in the Intensive Care Unit.

It must be recalled that Imran Bisthamin first played for St. Anthony's College, Kandy as a forward, captaining his school in his final year.

Later he turned out for the champion Kandy Sports Club as a flanker and played a major role in the club winning many championship titles for the last three years. He also played for the Sri Lanka youth team.

He was a hard working third row forward and a good carrier of the ball in addition to his aggressive play. He also excelled in the line outs using his height and build to the maximum.

His dropping from the Sri Lanka side added to the controversy which hit Sri Lanka's rugby, as many felt he should have been in the Sri Lanka purely on his excellent performance for Kandy SC this year.

He is now lying in a critical condition in Kandy hospital.

His fall is alleged to have taken place at the Torrington Shopping Complex, Dalada Veediya, Kandy and his head had struck the ground floor which was all cement and hard.
