Ranatunga to take over as president of Sri Lanka Cricket

Arjuna Ranatunga will take over as president of the Sri Lankan Cricket board next week. He will be replacing Jayantha Dharmadasa.

A senior member of Sri Lanka cricket told The Sunday Times that all major decision were held in abeyance – including the salary package of Presidential Cricket advisor D.S. de Silva, awaiting Ranatunga’s arrival.

“Ranatunga also may have a completely different committee,” he said.

Meanwhile Ranatunga himself commenting on the move said, “I still really do not know the exact date, but, all that I know is it is going to happen within the first week of January”.

Ranatunga, one of the most reliable middle order batsmen that Sri Lanka ever produced, played in Sri Lanka’s inaugural Test match as an 18-year-old schoolboy in 1982 and then went onto lead the Lankan team till 1999. Writes S.R. Pathiravithana for the Sunday Times.
