No comments :
Miffed with Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC), Chaminda Vaas on Thursday resigned as the national team's bowling coach.

Vaas tendered his resignation to SLC today and said he made the decision after being disappointed with functioning of the governing body.

However, SLC CEO Ashley de Silva said Vaas' contract had ended this month and the board was not contemplating renewing it.

Vaas, 41 was appointed Sri Lanka's fast bowling coach in 2013 and was on a two-year contract, SLC said.

It was believed that Vaas and Sri Lanka's head coach Marvan Atapattu were having a rough relationship off late.

Vaas, a member of Sri Lanka's 1996 World Cup winning team picked up 355 Test wickets and 400 ODI wickets in a career spanning over 14 years.

Withholding money by ICC will damage SL Cricket says SLC

No comments :
Sri Lanka’s cricket authority said Tuesday it is shocked by the governing body ICC’s decision to withhold a financial grant because of a dispute over the government’s appointment of an interim committee to run the sport in the country instead of holding an election.

Sri Lanka Cricket Chief Executive Office Ashley de Silva said in a letter to International Cricket Council’s Chief Executive David Richardson that withholding the funds will cause grave damage to cricket in Sri Lanka. He said the funds were due from last year’s World T20 championship and this year’s World Cup and withholding them was illegal and a breach of agreements between the two bodies.

Sri Lanka’s government appointed the committee saying it wants to investigate corruption allegations against the previous administration.

SLC is also shocked by the purported decision said to have been suddenly taken to "withhold" monies which are now lawfully due and payable by ICC to SLC by way of the Financial  Distributions for the T20 World Cup 2014 and the World Cup 2015. We would point out that  these are monies which were due and payable by ICC to SLC from long prior to the appointment  of the Interim Committee. Further, these are monies which are payable by ICC to SLC,  irrespective of the body which is managing SLC for the time being.
SLC regrets to state that, the purported sudden decision to "withhold" these monies which are legitimately due to SLC for past Events, is in breach of the Agreements between SLC and ICC and is without lawful authority and SLC urges ICC to release these monies without delay. SLC reminds ICC that these monies are lawfully due and payable to SLC and that the arbitrary and unlawful withholding of these monies will cause grave damage to Cricket in Sri Lanka.
As ICC's recent actions would gravely disrupt Cricket in Sri Lanka, SLC urges ICC to urgently obtain whatever information that may be programmes for Cricket in Sri Lanka.

ICC to investigate apparent government interference in Sri Lanka Cricket

The ICC hopes to progress this matter constructively with the Government of Sri Lanka for the good of all cricketing interests in Sri Lanka
ICC Board takes steps to investigate apparent government interference in Sri Lanka - Cricket News
The ICC hopes to progress this matter constructively for the good of all cricketing interests in Sri Lanka.
The ICC Board today considered the implications of the appointment of an Interim Committee of Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) by the Government of Sri Lanka and whether this may be a breach of the ICC’s constitution which requires free and fair elections for office-bearers within Member boards.

After considerable discussion, and without making a final decision on the matter, the ICC Board supported a recommendation of the ICC Governance Review Committee that it should write to the Sports Minister of Sri Lanka seeking a full and proper explanation of its intervention that prima facie puts SLC in breach of the ICC’s constitution.

The Board further decided that, pending the satisfactory resolution of this matter, the next financial distribution due from the ICC to SLC will not be advanced to SLC and will, instead, be held in an escrow account.

Notwithstanding the Board’s decision, Mr Nuski Mohamed – a nominee of the Interim Committee – was given the opportunity to provide information about the status of the Interim Committee, following which he was invited to attend the ICC Board meeting as an observer on behalf of the interests of cricket in Sri Lanka. Unfortunately, Mr Mohamed declined to attend the meeting on these terms and as a result there was no representative from Sri Lanka at the meeting.

The recent media comments of the Sri Lankan Sports Minister suggesting that the ICC was ‘colluding’ with former SLC officials were also noted and the ICC Board expressed its disappointment with the inaccurate nature of these comments. Moving forward the ICC hopes to progress this matter constructively with the Government of Sri Lanka for the good of all cricketing interests in Sri Lanka.

The ICC Board consists of the nominated representatives of each of the 10 Full Members plus three elected Associate Member representatives. The meeting is chaired by Mr Narayanaswami Srinivasan. Also present is the ICC Chief Executive.

Sri Lanka Cricket team possibly visit Pakistan - Reports

No comments :

Karachi: Sri Lanka President Maithripala Sirisena has reportedly expressed that his country’s cricket team will soon travel to Pakistan for a cricket series. It was an attack on the Sri Lankan team in 2009 that caused Pakistan to lose the privilege of hosting international cricket in the first place.

Sirisena announced the move on his first state visit to Pakistan, where he had a meeting with Pakistan President Mamnoon Hussain. While condemning the tragic attack on Sri Lankan Cricket Team in Lahore in 2009, Mamnoon assured his Sri Lankan counterpart Sirisena that maximum security would be provided to the visiting team, the Express Tribune reported.

No Test team has visited Pakistan since March 2009, when militants attacked the Sri Lankan team in Lahore, killing at least six Pakistani policemen and a van driver, and some of the visiting players were wounded.

ICC threat to suspend SLC if not transparent - Full Letter

No comments :

ICC expressed their view regarding the newly appointed interim committee and written a letter to explain their stand.
Dear ..............,
Apparent appointment of interim  committee to run Sri Lanka Cricket
I note from reports in the media of today’s date that the government of Sri Lanka intends to form an interim committee to run the cricketing affairs of Sri Lanka Cricket.

Whilst we have no further or substantive information about the accuracy or otherwise of these media reports, I just wanted to flag with you the risk that such action could put Sri Lanka Cricket in breach of Article 2.9(B) of ICC’s Articles of Association which states as follows: ‘Where a government interferes in the administration of cricket by a Member, including but not limited to interference in operational matters, the selection and management of teams, the appointment of coaches or support personnel, the Executive Board shall have the power to suspend or refuse to recognize that Member…’.

Of course, a full and proper investigation would need to be carried out, but any unjustified interference might expose Sri Lanka Cricket to the possibility of having its membership suspended by the ICC Board, which would have considerably damaging consequences, including the loss of the right for Sri Lanka Cricket to participate in ICC’s global events.

I very much hope that Sri Lanka Cricket and the government of Sri Lanka will be able to resolve any issues that they might have in a mutually agreeable fashion and look forward to receiving your update on what exactly has occurred or is transpiring.

- CEO  of ICC
