Sri Lanka Cricket today (29) announced the appointment of Thisara Perera as captain of the Limited Over team for the forthcoming ODI and T20I Series against India. However, Ashley De Silva, the CEO of SLC, sparked a controversy by stating that the board is on opinion to Captain’s on tour by tour basis.
“Sri Lanka Cricket will appoint captain’s on tour by tour basis” said Ashley De Silva.
The Comment of unaccountable CEO was that much pathetic and untimely, that it got the attention of Legendary Mahela Jayawardene as well.
“Then this from SLC… how can you have consistency and continuity? ♂️” Mahela Wrote on his twitter handle.
Another Twitterati took a dig on it, by stating that Sri Lanka cricket fans will be glad if they get new SLC president every series as well.
“@MahelaJay New players every series..New coaches every series..
Now new captains every series..
Glad if we can get SLC presidents every series as well..” wrote Kalhara Hapuarachchi.
SLC has already become notorious in changing the captains too frequently. Thisara is already the seventh man to captain Sri Lanka in 2017, following Mathews, Lasith Malinga, Upul Tharanga, Rangana Herath, Dinesh Chandimal and Chamara Kapugedera, who have borne the responsibility in one format or other.
