Dharamadasa overtakes International Cricket, Ravin Wickramaratne to oversee domestic

Written by N Krishnamurthy

After being appointed as the vice president of Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC), veteran administrator Jayantha Dharamadasa has been given the responsibility of overseeing International Cricket, while another vice president Ravin Wickramaratne will continue to look after domestic cricket affairs, Cricket Age reliably learns.

In a dramatic turn of events, on Wednesday (July 29) Dharamadasa returned to cricket fold barely few hours after his former associate K Mathivanan resigned from the vice president post.

According to sources, Dharamadasa was more willing for the International Cricket, considering the lesser workload, in comparison to domestic cricket.

“He was offered to pick what suits him and he opted for domestic cricket” an insider at SLC told Cricket Age.

Interestingly, Sri Lanka has no international cricket in next 6 months at least, as all the scheduled tours – India, Bangladesh – have been postponed indefinitely due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. Currently, bigwigs of Sri Lanka cricket are busy in preparing for the Lanka Premier League (LPL), which is scheduled to be played from August 28 to September 20. Dharamadasa will have no role to play in the LPL, as it has been termed as a domestic league.
