So an election has been conducted and a bunch of shady businessmen from dubious backgrounds now have control of Sri Lanka Cricket. Did we really expect any better ?
A few of us romantics thought that "yahapalanaya" would be the magic lamp that when rubbed, would produce the genie who in turn would give us the miracles we needed. A few of us thought that at least the ongoing corruption and incompetence would be halted. It is now proving an impossible task.
The winner of the election is already threatening to sue his main rival. I wonder if there is one more scenario to be played out with the betting connections of the newly elected president to go under further scrutiny? If so, will the person who came second for the top post be put into office?
God forbid ! He is a proven rascal and incompetent.
Or will another interim committee be appointed to take this farce into a new dimension?
Whatever the outcome of this speculation we are now assured that high level financial abuse will prevail, at least the chief incumbent of the Dambulla temple will be happy!
