ICC suspends Sri Lanka cricket board due to government interference

International Cricket Council (ICC) on Friday suspended the cricket board of Sri Lanka due to the inference by government. The development comes days after sports minister of the country sacked the entire cricket board of the country over the allegations of corruption. Later, the decision was overturned by the Sri Lanka’s Court of Appeals as it reinstated all the officials pending a full hearing. 

“The ICC Board met today and determined that Sri Lanka Cricket is in serious breach of its obligations as a Member, in particular, the requirement to manage its affairs autonomously and ensure that there is no government interference in the governance, regulation and/or administration of cricket in Sri Lanka. The conditions of the suspension will be decided by the ICC Board in due course,” ICC said in a release.
