SLC to send 37 Stakeholders, Universities Officials, Umpires Committee Members to UK for World Cup

Written by Rohit Pawar

The Sri Lanka Cricket Board (SLC) are spending lavishly on World Cup 2019. Just one month ago, SLC had negotiated with national team players and had forced them to accept reduced payment structure for the World Cup, which offered them just Peanuts for the ongoing mega event. However, the same SLC have paved the way for a joyride to UK for staggering 37 stakeholders, Universities Officials and umpire committee members by providing them match tickets for the World Cup.

On May 25, Cricket Age had published that the SLC has purchased 30 tickets for all 9 matches of the national team.

Accordingly, amongst 146 stakeholders, the board has finalized 31 stakeholders, as well as 4 universities officials who votes in SLC elections and 2 umpires committee members for World Cup matches tickets.

Cricket Age has the access of the list that includes 3 officials from Panadura SC and 3 officials from Central Province. Surprisingly, no stakeholders or officials from prestigious clubs like Nondescript Cricket Club (NCC), Colts Cricket Club, Tamil Union Cricket Club, Ragama CC, Bloomfield have been added in the list.

Also, only Samantha Dodanwela name has been included from prestigious Sinhalese Sports Club (SSC), that too because currently he is serving as the chairman of tournament committee (He has applied for UK visa for five years so only obtained the recommendation letter from the SLC and is going to UK on his own expenses). No other officials or stakeholders from SSC has been included in the list.
