Written by N Krishnamurthy

The Sebastianites Sports Club has been accused of luring players by selling them Lanka Premier League (LPL) Dreams, Cricket Age reliably learns.

The Sebastianites Sports Club, which plays in division 1, is owned by now UK based Dr. Sarath Seneviratne, who bought the club from Ajith Cooray. He is also the owner of Dambulla Giants LPL team.

According to sources, few top club officials are reportedly involved in luring Players by giving them hopes of playing in Premier Season and LPL!

“They lured players last year also with these tactics. Even Owner’s son Sasha Seneviratne was also a part of Dambulla Giants” a source told Cricket Age.

The Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC), however, is determined to stop these sort of unethical practices this year.

“There will be only performance based LPL selection this year. No lobbying, favouritism and selection manipulation will be allowed” a top SLC official told Cricket Age.
