Cancelled Ceylonese tour of England in 1968

Controversies of Cricket team selections are not a new thing for Ceylon/Sri Lanka. They have a long history. The worst was the cancellation of a Cricket tour of England in 1968, because of team selections, which paved the way for the introduction of a Sports Act.

The cancellation of the tour was a blow for Sir Learie Constantine, the legendary West Indian cricketer, who worked hard on the initial arrangements.
