Former fast bowler and Chairman Of Selectors Pramodaya Wickramasinghe is all set to return to Sri Lanka Cricket fold, this time in a new roĺe altogether, Cricket Age Exclusively learns.
Following a not so successful 50 Overs World Cup in India, Pramodaya led selection committee was replaced by former opener Upul Tharanga.
Cricket Age understands that, in his new capacity, Pramodaya will be overseeing domestic matches pitches, logistics and will report to Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC).
After his arrival from India after the World Cup, Pramodya had pointed fingers at certain individuals vying for power in the Sri Lanka Cricket Board, brokers involved in match-fixing and those attempting to secure spots in the national team as contributors to the challenges faced by Sri Lankan cricket.
In a letter, he had expressed concern that the selection committee was compelled to divert attention from players’ skills to matters beyond the game’s vitality due to these external pressures.
