Jayananda Warnaweera has expressed his desire to return to cricket administration.
After completing the three-year suspension handed to him by the International Cricket Council (ICC) and Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) the Galle chief curator is all set to contest the Galle District Cricket association elections this year.
The elections were scheduled to be held on March 31 but has been indefinitely postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
“Many of my club members and friends want me to contest for the secretary post and I have decided to oblige them”, the 60-year-old former fast bowler and off-break bowler said.
“The ICC suspension is a history now and I have learnt my lesson. Now I am committed to perform my new role”.
“I will also guide the curator. I have more than 20 years experience and want to utilize it for the betterment of the game”.
“Galle International Stadium is at my heart and I want to give something to the game”, he said.
Warnaweera played 10 Tests and six ODIs, capturing 32 and six wickets in the respective formats of the game.
