The hearing of the court case filed by former Sri Lanka Cricket Board (SLC) vice president Mohan De Silva and assistant secretary Ravin Wickramaratne challenging their disqualification from the upcoming election has been postponed to February 21, Cricket Age reliably learns.
According to sources, the court case notice were not served to the receiptents and on that basis the hearing has been postponed.
On February 8, just two weeks prior to SLC election, the Appeal Committee had delivered a decision against Mohan De Silva and Ravin Wickramaratne by ruling that they are ineligible to contest the 2019 SLC election.
A day later, on February 9, Mohan De Silva released a media statement, stating that he would fight against the decision.
In addition, both Mohan De Silva and Ravin Wickramaratne called for a press conference on Tuesday and opposed the appeal committee decision.
With this postponement, as SLC election are scheduled for February 21, both Mohan De Silva and Ravin Wickramaratne are virtually out of the contention as it is almost impossible now that the appeal Court will give a stay order on just very first hearing.
