Former First Class cricketer and current venue manager of Galle Cricket Club (GCC) Harsha Munasinghe is shamelessly backing former “tainted” curator Jayananda Warnaweera’s camp for forthcoming club election, Cricket Age reliably learns.
The Galle CC election is scheduled to be held on June 26.
According to sources, Munasinghe, who played 16 First Class games, has joined Warnaweera’s camp, which also consists of Galle CC’s sacked vice president Shantilal Abeygunawardana and Nihal Hettiarachchi.
With Warnaweera’s entry, now the Galle CC electoral battle is expected to be a three-cornered fight among incumbent president Kumar Smarasinghe, Waranaweera backed group and one other camp. However, Cricket Age understands that Waranaweera backed camp (of Shantilal, Nihal and Munasinghe) will be amalgamated at the last moment to back Samarasinghe fraction, as the only deal they could secure is that Shantilal’s son will be contesting for vice president post!
