LPL played without Sports Ministry approval: Minister

Sri Lanka Premier League (LPL) tournament has been played without the approval of the Sports Ministry, Sports Minister Roshan Ranasinghe said.

He told Parliament that neither the Sports Ministry nor he as the Sports Minister has seen the agreement.

"I have sent a letter to the Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) requesting for the agreement," he said.

He said this while responding to a question by SJB MP Nalin Bandara Jayamaha during the Committee stage debate of the Sports Ministry.

The Minister said only through the media he got to know that the agreement has been reached to play T10 tournament as well.

"Definitely, there is a problem here," he said. (Ajith Siriwardana and Yohan Perera)
