    An excellent team but many such teams have been formed in the past and yet nothing changed with regards to the administration of SLC which reeks of corruption . Until that is put right no technical team will be good enough to sort the mess of Sri Lanka Cricket

    Until the corrupt SLC board is dissolved and kicked out, no Committee will be effective.
