ICC Board meetings conclude in Dubai with Sri Lanka regaining full member status

In July 2018, the ICC Board was advised that the Court of Appeal in Sri Lanka had stayed the Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) elections for office bearers and appointed a Competent Authority for cricket in Sri Lanka.

In light of this apparent government interference, the ICC set a deadline for elections for Sri Lanka Cricket and imposed funding restrictions on the organization with their continuing membership of the ICC under consideration if the organization did not comply.

The ICC Board concluded that SLC have complied with the directions and welcomed Mr Shammi Silva to the Board following his election as SLC President and all restrictions have been lifted.
