By Staff Writers | May 4, 2012

Sports MinisterAmal Silva today tendered his resignation from Sri Lanka’s national cricket selection panel citing personal reasons.

Silva resigned just three months into the new selection panel’s one year term.

The 51-year-old was appointed by sports minister Mahindananda Aluthgamage in late January as a member of the new selection panel headed by Ashantha de Mel.

"I sent in my resignation to the minister of sports," Silva told reporters.

Silva has been a selector previously and was part of the pre-World Cup 2011 selection panel headed by Aravinda de Silva.

The ministry of sport is yet to announce his successor.
