COLOMBO (Daily Mirror) -The chairman of the newly appointed interim Committee to administer cricket, Arjuna Ranatunga said he and the committee will be committed to restoring Sri Lankan cricket no matter what the Cabinet decides upon.

He made this comment in response to a question raised by journalists on the reports which said the Cabinet is to take up the matter with regard to the appointment of the interim committee.

"Let the Cabinet decide anything. Let it decide to allow robbers to administer cricket. We will get on with our task," he said.

" We will put Sri Lankan cricketers into a winning position once again," he added.

Meanwhile, Minister of Sports Roshan Ranasinghe defended his decision to appoint an interim committee.

"I have appointed an able team to restore Sri Lanka's cricket. They have been given dual tasks. One is to restore the administration of cricket. The other is to build a strong national cricket team which could win games," he said. (Yohan Perera)

    Let us hope that this guy is not planning to be the captain and the team?

    Well said Arjuna! Whole country cricket fans are behind you! President and Cabinet can get lost in hell! RW let ministers do their job rather than poking your finger in every pie man !

    Cabinet is full of corrupt politicians who work to the fancies of corrupt SLC and their ICC counterparts backed by India. Thanks to minister and Arjuna who has a back bone will correct this situation and we public will support you fully.

    Prasanna and Arjuna although having same family name as me are not related to me. Both have used politics to make much money, and SLC job for Arjuna is another chance for him to do corrupt money making.

    But you have a member whose brother was accused of irregularities in the suspended board, about taking actresses to Australia last time we toured. Bad choice.

    Ram Monday, 06 November 2023 02:05 PM

    Committee is acceptable except two political appointees and one other. Justice Minister's son and Muzzammil's so are not acceptable. The third is past President Dharmadasa's son. Weren't there any others to fit into the three slots?

    We have confident in you and your team mates. Congratulations.

    N V Jen Monday, 06 November 2023 03:36 PM

    Well, prove it soon. You are the one who uttered that the current chicken hearted team is better than the 1996 cup winning team!

    Fact Monday, 06 November 2023 03:44 PM

    Yes Sir. Social Media experts on the subject can do a better job than the Board officials.

    Jayantha Monday, 06 November 2023 03:53 PM

    This man was appointed as the President of the interim committee when Mahinda was the President of the Country. He started micro managing the affairs of the cricket board and made a mess. In my opinion, this is a bad move by the minister. Both the minister and Arjuna should be focusing on issues not personalities. Arjuna has made a grave error blaming Maheka and Sanga for under par performance of the team.

    Pantha Kumaran Monday, 06 November 2023 04:35 PM

    I have faith in Arujana's appointment. He is the best person for this job.

    Anthony. R Monday, 06 November 2023 05:13 PM

    Ministers ignorence of the sport ìs used by the Ace crook, to come in so the same story continues in another way in partnership may be. Aiyo SriLanka Cricket

    My suggestion stay with Sri Lankans on the technical side since we have the expertise but for the Administrative side and Psychology side get outside help.Sri Lankans are poor managers left to themselves quarrel fight which is why that outside help is needed As for psychologists I think the talent is outside,You should also consider using new technology where possible when analysing data etc the Dutch did it?? At the end what is needed is a TEAM effort where everyone pulls in the same direction so man management will be critical for long term success

    All is good, please do not bring your family members as advisors to posts. Also do not think that the 96 team members are the only ones how know cricket. There are many others Just because we won in 96 it does not mean all team members of that team are effective coaches or administrators.

    Sambo Monday, 06 November 2023 07:57 PM

    Well said. Stck to your words.

    Rajsoma Monday, 06 November 2023 08:53 PM

    This is a good move ..I do
