Sacked Sri Lanka Cricket Board Reinstated Following Court Order

The Sri Lanka Cricket Board (SLB), which was dismantled by the Sports Minister Roshan Ranasingha, was reinstated by an interim by a court on Tuesday.

The Sri Lanka Sports Minister had formed an interim committee led by 1996 World Cup-winning captain Arjuna Ranatunga to take control of SLC on Monday.

SLC President Shammi Silva, on Monday, challenged Minister Roshan Ranasinghe’s decision to dissolve the Sri Lanka Cricket Board and form an interim committee.

According to Sri Lanka’s Daily Mirror, Sports Minister Roshan Ranasingha was admonished by Sri Lankan President Ranil Wickremesinghe for his hasty moves regarding the cricket body.

Sri Lanka’s Sports Minister decided to sack the cricket board of the country following Sri Lanka’s disastrous 302-run World Cup loss to India last week.
