I didn't follow anything related to bro. I mainly follow Rugby. I think @Gibbs might know.
In Int Basketball ? Pretty slim.. One given the average height of Sri Lankans the other i think it comes ways down the list in popularity after Cricket, Rugby and Athletics

The national sport of the country is Volleyball, In which the average height of a top ranked player is between 6'1 and 6'11.. Average height of a Sri Lankan male is 5'5.. It's ranked 91st in the world

So you can imagine how dumb and misplaced the priorities are, Some fucktard politician in the mid 80's woke up one day and just decided that Volleyball should be the national sport :disagree:

Isn't Netball doing quite good? Average height of SL really is a disgrace, :D

Netball is, Sri Lanka are Asian Champions and have played in world cups bar 1 or 2 if i'm not mistaken.. Thats because they have long established pedigree in Netball, Sri Lanka is quite unique in South Asia when it comes to Sporting culture, Sports like Rugby and Netball are very popular like rest of the commonwealth but almost unheard of in the rest of the sub continent

With increase in nutrition and better access to other supplements each new generation seems to be getting taller and bigger, It's quite evident.. Comparatively to the rest of the region Sri Lankans arnt doing that bad

Indonesia will host FIBA Asia 2021 together with Singapore in August next year, inshaAllah. I dont know whether Singapore is eligible to play in the competition since their team is not even inside the qualifying round.

This will likely become the stadium for FIBA Asia 2021. Jakarta has 3 good basketball stadium:

Philippine use their amateur team in the second window since their PBA team is still playing in their professional league. Philippine protested FIBA when they know they are going to play against Indonesia after South Kore cancelled the second window game. The game between Indonesia vs Philippine is cancelled and moved to previous plan in February where they can use their PBA team.

LOL Philippine is afraid against Indonesian team. :rofl:

We just play one time against Thailand in Bahrain because of that and then must go back to Indonesia.
