SLC elections: Local sport authorities to meet ICC chief

Sri Lanka Cricket on Monday, August 27, announced that a delegation of Sri Lanka sports officials, including Sports Minister Faiszer Musthapha, will visit on Wednesday the International Cricket Council to discuss ‘the current interim administration of the SLC and the future course of action to be taken to establish an elected administration to the institution.’

The ICC has given a strict deadline, the end of 2018, for SLC to hold its elections and they have also warned the national administration that they will revoke its membership if they do not meet that deadline.

Presently cricket administration is done under an Competent Authority appointed by Sports Minister Faiszer Musthapha early this year after holding of the cricket-board elections was stopped by a court order.

The SLC media communiqué further adds:

‘Minister of Sports Honorable Faiszer Musthapha, Competent Authority of Sri Lanka Cricket Mr. Kamal Pathmasiri, Senior Deputy Solicitor General of the Attorney General’s Department; Mr. Sumathi Dharmawardena and the CEO of Sri Lanka Cricket Mr. Ashley De Silva will visit the International Cricket Council on the 29th August, 2018.

‘They will hold discussions with the ICC Chairman Mr. Shashank Manohar and its CEO Mr. David Richardson on the same day.

‘The meeting will focus on discussing the current interim administration of the SLC and the future course of action to be taken to establish an elected administration to the institution.’
