This superb item of signed Cricket Memorabilia is a colourful First Day of Issue cover, stamped 15th of July 1995, and personally signed by the Kent and Sri Lanka legend, Aravinda De Silva. De Silva made his Test match debut in 1984 at Lord's against England. During the early part of his career he was known as a dashing but inconsistent batsman - he was given the nickname "Mad Max" for his tendency to get out to rash shots. But a successful season playing first-class cricket for the Kent in 1995 marked a turning point in his career. De Silva was instrumental in Sri Lanka's triumph in the 1996 Cricket World Cup where his unbeaten century and three wickets earned him the Man of the Match award in the final against Australia.
