Shaken up by the national team’s embarrassing defeat against England in the recently concluded test series, the Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) has decided to take some stern action to bring back the glory. While chief selector Asantha De Mel has already resigned from his post, Cricket Age learns that while High Performance Centre (HPC) physio manager Paul Khory has already been removed, his assistant Chryshantha will also be fired.
“More than the performance, these two have been found guilty for manipulating things in the dressing room. Chrishantha has particularly been accused for submitting false reports on players fitness” a top SLC official told Cricket Age.
In addition, some more members of the team management are also likely to be fired, like national team’s physio Ajantha.
“The board will not tolerate any sort of indiscipline within the team. Its a professional environment and everyone needs to deliver, without involving in other practices” top SLC official added.
