Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) has been informed to appear before the Parliamentary Watchdog Committee on Public Enterprise next Tuesday (14).
COPE Chairman Ranjith Bandara stated that the alleged corruption within SLC would be thoroughly scrutinised during the committee meeting. Concurrently, Speaker Mahinda Yapa Abeywardena directed Sports Minister Roshan Ranasinghe to furnish details about the allegations against SLC to the COPE.
This move may be interpreted by the ICC as further interference from the government in managing Sri Lankan cricket and may lead to a deadlock in negotiations.
SLC tactical approach
The SLC has been using different tactics to avoid financial and organizational regulation for a very long time.
