He also shared his photos, clicked when he was distributing tea and buns on Twitter. He wrote, ”We served tea and buns with the team from Community Meal Share this evening for the people at the petrol queues around Ward Place and Wijerama mawatha.”

”The queues are getting longer by the day and there will be many health risks to people staying in queues,” added Mahanama.

In the second tweet, the cricketer requested people to look after each other in the fuel queues.

”Please, look after each other in the fuel queues. Bring adequate fluid and food and if you’re not well please, reach out to the closest person next to you and ask for support or call 1990. We need to look after each other during these difficult times,” read the tweet of the Sri Lankan cricketer.
