All the top administrators, officials and their favourites of Sri Lanka Cricket Board (SLC) on Wednesday gathered in Brisbane to watch the second T20I of the three match series.
After the arrival of Shammi Silva as dummy president of SLC, the board has established a trend that for each and every overseas tour, there must be at least over a dozen people at every venue. For Pakistan tour, Shammi Silva gifted that opportunity to his personal assistant Tanesh Dias and few other ExCo members.
So as per the trend, for the ongoing Australia T20 series, apart from two mandatory attenders – Shammi Silva and Vice president Ravin Wickramaratne – SLC has this time gifted overseas joyride to CEO Ashley De Silva, National Development Committee (NDC) Co-ordinator Anura Weerasinghe, ExCo Members Sujeewa Godaliyadda, Gihan Weerasinghe and Priyantha Zoysa.
“Sujeewa Godaliyadda left on Friday night, while another ExCo member Priyantha Zoysa departed for Australia yesterday” a SLC insider told Cricket Age.
As per the ExCo minute of the SLC, all the officials have been given air fares and daily allowances upto 10 days.
Led by Lasith Malinga, Sri Lanka comprehensively lost the series 2-0 in Brisbane itself, as the final match will be played on November 1 in Melbourne.
