IS AUSSIE CRICKET ESSENTIAL IN SRI LANKA

“The most effective of the Australians' protests against Apartheid was the boycott of all-white South African rugby and cricket teams in the early 1970s.” https://www.sbs.com.au/news/article/the-australians-who-helped-end-apartheid/wq947gouc
If the above is a heritage, those who inherit that experience would become the heirs of protestors against suppression of sovereignty. All positive heritages carry sovereign values and merge naturally with other positive heritages. They oppose negative heritages. Both are known not through the matter recognised as heritage but the minds of respective heirs.
As per the current actions of the Australian Cricket Team, they oppose the above heritage developed in the 1970s. Chris Savage confirms this as follows:
[There’s something eerily dystopian about cricket continuing unscathed while a humanitarian crisis unravels outside the gates.]
As per the above SBS report:
anti-apartheid activists being honoured in a new exhibition in South Africa say
it is an important reminder of the power of protest.
The most effective
of the Australians' protests against Apartheid was the boycott of all-white
South African rugby and cricket teams in the early 1970s.
As a student activist, Meredith Burgmann jumped the fence at the Sydney Cricket Ground during the 1971 game between the Wallabies and the racially-selected Springboks.]
Heritages form naturally, when we sacrifice currently earned by us through Due Processes. Due Processes are the pathways through which we inherit the positive heritages. Heritages have perfectly balanced institutional structures.They are our true constitutions.
If the current action by the Australian Cricket team in Sri Lanka is considered to be of ‘positive value’ then the above heritage has been abandoned by Australians. Part of the reason is the way Shane Warne was recognised in relation to Tsunami services in Sri Lanka
["I just wanted to help, I said to Murali, 'what can I actually do?'" Shane Warne told 60 Minutes at the time.
"He said, 'you just being here will actually help.'"
Murali was right.
Shane Warne walked around the disaster zone with his iconic blonde goatee and he was recognised by locals in some of the most remote parts of Sri Lanka.]
