Political meddling ruining Sri Lankan cricket - Ranatunga
(Srilankamirror) - Arjuna Ranatunga, Sri Lanka's former captain, has said that political interference is ruining cricket in Sri Lanka and that the country lacks a long term vision for the sport.
Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) held elections for the first time in seven years in January, ending a series of politically appointed interim-committees that had been administering the sport.
But the elections were not without controversy.
One of two groups that were contesting decided to withdraw the night before the election in a "symbolic gesture of protest" against what they saw as political interference in the process.
