SRI Lanka‘s sports minister has forced the entire national cricket board committee to step down.
Minister Mahindananda Aluthgamage said the Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) committee, headed by former player Somachandra de Silva, was asked to resign following allegations of financial mismanagement..
De Silva is being replaced by millionaire businessman and former SLC board chairman Upali Dharmadasa.
“One of the main tasks is to keep an eye on the finances. We are in a financial crisis after the World Cup,” Aluthgamage told a news conference. “We spent more than we budgeted for.”
