Sri Lankan cricketers who have so far not signed the Central Contracts have been given a two-day extension, Daily Mirror learns.
This new development was confirmed by Aravinda de Silva, the chairman of the Cricket Advisory Committee.
Hesaid, “Because of the current lockdown situation in the country, we have extended the deadline of June 3.”
“As far as I know, no player has come forward to sign the contracts.”
“We are clear in our minds. The players have been given two options. Either you sign the contracts or accept the tour-by-tour contracts.”
De Silva also defended SLC’S decision to send Tom Moody on the upcoming England tour.
“It is wrongly presumed that Moody has been hired only to groom players for the future and search talent in the country. He is Director of Cricket and his main job is also to ensure the smooth functioning of the national team, he has to share his experience with the team/s, evaluate the performance of the coaching staff etc”.
