COLOMBO (Daily Mirror) - In the wake of the court decision that suspended the operation of the gazette notification in respect of SLC's Interim Committee, its Chairman Arjuna Ranatunga said he will divulge the names behind the move in the near future.
ddressing the media, Ranatunga said he had not been officially informed of the court decision nor was he summoned before the court.

"However, I respect the verdict delivered by any court. I am not perplexed nor surprised with this decision as this was around the corner. Nevertheless, I am disappointed and sad that I might miss the timely opportunity to renew Sri Lanka's cricket," Arjuna said while adding that he suspected political backing behind the move.

Thus, he reiterated that he would reveal the names, with proper documents and proof, of those involved in the move to suspend the interim committee.

    CLC is rotten to the core. This has been going on for nearly 30 years. It is not the game, country, sport, nor the cricketor. Money made by the handlers and corrupt politicians around it.

    Arjuna is the only person who can save the Sri Lankan cricket, but Indians consider him as openly anti-Indian. Sri Lankan politicians and Policy makers don’t have the balls to go against the Indian interests thus Arjun would never be appointed to lead the rescue of Sri Lankan cricket.

    So Ranil is out in the open to defend the old SLC bunch of thieves.

    Mr. R the cricket board and Sri Lamka cricket surely have more than a single person to take this forward. You are not the Saviour of the future of this great game and cannot guarantee to put it right. Furthermore, you stated you are going to work for no remuneration which is difficult to digest as the cricket board does not need charity. and can afford to pay for labor in any capacity.

    RB Tuesday, 07 November 2023 10:23 PM

    Please don't wait for future, kindly divulge the names forthwith

    Someone said they have ‘files’ - we are yet to see them!

    Paga works with Politicians as an election is coming and UNP needs money!

    Lalantha Perera Tuesday, 07 November 2023 11:07 PM

    Mr. President wickramasinghe Sir, Shame on you for playing a political game to the advantage of your clonies who ran Sri Lanka cricket to the ground , allow people who played the game to restore the beautiful game and give it back to the people of Sri Lanka to enjoy the game , as this is the game that unites Sri Lanka, even in the heights of the war, the guns were put down to witness the victory in 1996, Sir give the country back to the intelligent and educated people and stay away from advocating political interference, Remember in the developed world retirement is at 65 not when you are 6ft. Under. Cricket is played on the field by gentlemen, for God sake keep the sport independent , of goons who ran it for money in their pockets the same way the Country was run by corrupt individuals, so Sad .

    The Gazette notification is flawed. If it was discussed in cabinet before publishing perhaps those defects may have been highlighted before proceeding ahead with it. The secrecy and haste of the minister shows his immaturity, which most likely is being exploited by crafty opportunists. The question is to whose agenda was he working. Merely saying that it was within my authority to do is not good enough.

    You got to understand that RANIL is a Master Manipulator!! He takes care of people who helped him in cash and kind like MR, Mahendran, BOOKIEEMAN just to name a few!!

    People Power Wednesday, 08 November 2023 12:03 AM

    @This is the truth, agreed hundred percent. It is Indian hand with spineless Ranil grovelling into two.Still we should start an aragalaya, peoples power will overtake all.

    Fred Wednesday, 08 November 2023 01:27 AM

    If money is the problem why is the country borrowing more of it or simply printing it.In any country or institution when the rot starts it is usually from the top.But this has become a diversion now.Iam sure our leadership has more important things to worry about otherwise there will be no Sri Lanka.A country divided will not stand, as they say

    Clean the corrupt clubs and have an election. Wait until the team come home and get their view. Hastly moves not acceptable though there must be a complete clensing.

    Dan Wednesday, 08 November 2023 09:38 AM

    Why in the near future? Why not now? We have heard this phrase from politicians so often without any revelation

    Neil Wednesday, 08 November 2023 10:15 AM

    It is easier to name those who are not corrupt- there are just a handful of them.

    A disgusted citizen Wednesday, 08 November 2023 10:38 AM

    It is disgusting that the Head of State RW is supporting crooks in SLC. Voters should remove him if and when the Presidential Election is held. However, it is highly unlikely that he will hold a free and fair election.

    Mithun Wednesday, 08 November 2023 10:42 AM

    He also a corrupt. I have no faith on him as well.

    Roshanaly Wednesday, 08 November 2023 11:24 AM

    More time given to destroy vital documents and drain the remaining funds.

    Cheers Wednesday, 08 November 2023 01:57 PM

    Ranathunga is bankrupt now after Yahapalanaya 2015-2019 now trying to rob the cricket board like how he ribbed the petroleum and ports 2015-2019

    Delayed justice is denied justice, reveal names, fans are eager to know.

    DJ Wednesday, 08 November 2023 07:50 PM

    Corrupt to the core.
