SL Cricket officials to be summoned by Parliament

SL Cricket officials to be summoned by Parliament

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.

After the special audit draft report on SLC came to light in August, SLC immediately stated that the institution is not subjected to a government audit
SLC has further sent its responses claiming that it is a volunteer organization and is independent of any external or regulatory control
The AG’s report further states that financial statements certified by the Executive Committee (Ex-Co) must be submitted to the AG
