SLC turns on to ICC, citing ‘increasing political interference’

An official complaint made by Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) to its parent body the International Cricket Council (ICC) over increasing political interference in its administration has attracted the wrath of the Sports Ministry, which has ordered the SLC to cite these reported incidents of political interference.

Ever since SLC shifted the Asia Cup to Dubai (while retaining hosting rights) SLC has become a point of discussion in Parliament. Opposition MPs have called on the Government to probe alleged underhand deals by local cricket officials reportedly to deprive Sri Lanka of hosting the Asia Cup 2022 tournament which they say could’ve earned at least US$50mn.
