SLC to oppose revamp

Sri Lanka Cricket decided to to firmly oppose the revised proposals of the controversial ICC revamp plan which sought to give a larger control to India, Australia and England.

The SLC said its Executive Committee on Wednesday discussed the issue in a meeting with all stakeholders and decided to oppose the ICC’s Revised Working Group Proposals.

“We discussed the proposals with all Sri Lanka Cricket stakeholders. We were unanimous in deciding to oppose them,” SLC chief Jayantha Dharmadasa said.

“There are many unnecessary elements in the proposals,” SLC Secretary Nishantha Ranatunga said.

“Most of these proposals are detrimental to the well being of Sri Lanka Cricket,” Thilanga Sumathipala, a former SLC boss and current government parliamentarian, said.

Cricket analysts said SLC’s decision assumes significance as it had relied heavily on BCCI support to stay afloat when hit by financial constraints.
