Sports Minister Fernando is one of the few ministers to have actually played representative sport. He knows what sport is all about. And knows more also about the politics going on in sport bodies especially Sri Lanka Cricket. From the time he took this hot seat he has been receiving disturbing reports that would undermine the TRUST that the sporting public places on administrators of cricket.
Finally he had to say enough is enough and with the cry for cricket to be improved becoming deafening by the day, Fernando played the master stroke and asked SLC to move aside Hathurusingha from the pinnacle. The Minister cannot be faulted.
