Minister Lokuge when contacted said that it was too premature to comment on the issue, but stressed that any decision regarding the SLC Interim Committee will be taken on the advice and recommendations of President Rajapaksa.

The Minister agreed that Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC), the sport’s local controlling body was afflicted by a spate of ills as was recently highlighted in Parliament by SLC Interim Committee Chairman and MP Arjuna Ranatunga during the Committee Stage debate of the Ministry of Sports, and the only panacea could be either to hold elections to SLC or form a fresh Interim Committee.
