SLC hits back at Mahela, Sanga

The governing body Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) has dismissed allegations levelled at them by two senior players, Mahela Jayawardena and Kumar Sangakkara.

The two players at a press conference held immediately after their return on Tuesday having won the World T20 title had blamed the SLC Secretary Nishantha Ranatunga and CEO Ashley de Silva for demoralising them ahead of the tournament in Bangladesh. A SLC statement said that it regretted “such unsubstantiated accusations levelled against the Honorary Secretary and CEO by a senior member of the national team without verifying the facts as a public forum.” The SLC officials had expressed disappointment over the decision by Jayawardene and Sangakkara to retire without making the announcement through proper channels which is through the Board.
