Sri Lanka Cricket awaits government advise

Colombo, Mar 26, 2013, (PTI): 16:15 IST
Faced with the looming threat on the safety of Sri Lankan players taking part in the upcoming Indian Premier League, the Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) has sought government's advise on the cricketers who are scheduled to play in Chennai.

Nishantha Ranatunga, the SLC secretary said that they have sought the External Affairs Ministry's advise and hence, the players would be given suggestions depending on the MEA instructions.

About 13 Sri Lankan players have signed up to play for different franchises in the sixth edition of the IPL. Opening bowler Nuwan Kulasekera and the rookie off spinner Akila Dhananjaya are a part of the Chennai Super Kings side.

The Island nationals including Buddhist monks and some Sri Lanka linked property have come under attack in the recent weeks in Chennai leading to the UN rights body resolution against Lankans.

Tamil Nadu chief minister Jayalalithaa, who had previously objected to Sri Lankan military personnel being trained in the State, stands opposed to Sri Lanka sporting teams and individuals performing in the State.

Tamil Nadu with 65 million Tamils urge accountability from the Sri Lankan government for alleged atrocities perpetrated on the Tamil minority during the last stages of the military battle with the LTTE.

Sri Lanka has blamed Tamil Nadu anti-Sri Lankanism on politicking by both Jayalalithaa's AIADMK and the former chief minister Karunanidhi's DMK.
