SLC turns down KJP’s plea to fix inured shoulder

Kusal Janith Perera’s proposed travel to Britain for shoulder surgery has been further delayed after Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) turned down the batter’s request for it to foot the full bill. SLC has asked the player to bear a substantial portion of the cost which is not covered by the insurer.

Accordingly, the opener appealed to his employer to consider meeting the full cost, only to be met with a blunt refusal. SLC also did not offer an alternative. This means Perera could miss out on this year’s T20 World Cup in Australia. He is now expected to meet SLC Chairman Shammi Silva to ask him to reconsider.
