    Man. Every one loves cricket but it’s contra led by a segment of the population. We need to start a campaign against these people. At least send letters to the ICC sending are decent or singnature campaign against these people and submit to ICC.

    eventually, Arjuna lost, Thilanga won as usually

    Arjuna fought and won 96 World Cup. Thilanga paid and won SL Cricket board elections.

    They just don't go away! Thilanga ate SLC and now one of his henchmen is in charge! Congratulations! Murali was right! Kusal play for coach while Shammi for Thilanga! Fans should play for Suranga!

    RIP SLC. Thilanga in action.

    What a joke?

    Huna Thursday, 21 February 2019 12:23 PM

    Another business man?

    Kadmin Thursday, 21 February 2019 12:46 PM

    I think SLC need a bottom up overhaul. There won't be any cricket in few years. Better to find another sport I guess.

    Cluless Thursday, 21 February 2019 01:13 PM

    Joke. Who is the secretary? Only hope the minister.

    SLC with KG Thursday, 21 February 2019 01:16 PM

    That is why this country needs a dictator .Democracy flourish when crooks are away from politics like in old days of SL politics. now no more.This will be end of cricket.I like if Arjuna had some opportunity

    83 votes! I wonder how many clubs can vote and which clubs have more than one vote. This country has the most "A" division clubs in the world a system which has shown that most of the matches are a farce. All Sumathipala's games to increase his teams vote bank

    Mike Thursday, 21 February 2019 01:27 PM

    Status quo. Rogue replacing another Rogue. Wait for the punch line interviews with promises galore. All promises will be kept. Only difference is the promise for the clooneys who voted them in. And morw into thier pockets.

    Brendon de Kelart Thursday, 21 February 2019 01:34 PM

    Quote - Cricinfo Shammi Silva has been elected president of Sri Lanka Cricket. Drawing in 83 out of a possible 142 votes Silva, a candidate backed by former president Thilanga Sumathipala, beat Jayantha Dharmadasa, who received 56 votes. Unquote It is the same scoundrels

    Brendon de Kelart Thursday, 21 February 2019 01:37 PM

    The rouges and scoundrels back in action elected by vote sold for money earned through match fixing. The cleaning should start from club administration otherwise you cannot revive SLC

    Kanthie Thursday, 21 February 2019 02:13 PM

    Isn't this the same man who was embroiled in a 5 million dollar scam with SLC a few months back? The Treasurer who was suspended pending inquiry? Whats going on?

    Fanny Thursday, 21 February 2019 02:45 PM

    Change this crooked constitution which leave room for crooks to get elected.

    Sunil Thursday, 21 February 2019 03:19 PM

    R.I.P Sri Lankan Cricket...

    Chams Thursday, 21 February 2019 04:22 PM

    Last nail on the coffin to say the least!

    Anthony Thursday, 21 February 2019 05:09 PM

    Good No Ranatungas,

    Aus Damitha Thursday, 21 February 2019 07:31 PM

    What education background he has to run such a big organization? This is the whole problem in this island.

    Michael LaBrooy Friday, 22 February 2019 07:48 AM

    Well well well how this happened only the people who did it behind the scenes will know. The great train robbery......

    Hany Rauff Azzam Saturday, 23 February 2019 06:41 AM

    I do not support both the Sumathipala or Ranatunge factions as both are corrupt. Minister should interfere and appoint an interim committee until further notice. How is Sumathipala allowed to enter the board premises to be fed a piece of cake by his bowser mate Silva? He should be banned and should not be allowed to enter the SLC premises.

    bala sunderam Sunday, 24 February 2019 04:47 PM

    For a moment I thought Mr Sumathipala's brother is elected as the President of SLC. Wow look alike take over for the same task. Just bust the SLC treasury and go broke.
