With their suspension lifted, Sri Lanka will host the Annual Normal Assembly of the Worldwide Cricket Council (ICC) in July, the nation’s sports activities minister Harin Fernando stated on Thursday. Sri Lanka Cricket was suspended for presidency interference in its functioning. It price the island nation a possibility to host the Below-19 World Cup which is at present underway in South Africa.
“Sri Lanka will get to host the ICC AGM from July 19-22 in Colombo. This will probably be an ideal increase for Sri Lanka on the subject of cricket and tourism,” Fernando, who can also be the minister of tourism, stated in a press release.
SLC was suspended in November for not assembly its ICC Member obligations, particularly, failing to independently handle its affairs and stop authorities interference within the regulation and administration of cricket in Sri Lanka.
Roshan Ranasinghe, the predecessor of Fernando, appointed an interim committee, alleging corruption in SLC. The committee was headed by the previous World Cup-winning captain Arjuna Ranatunga.
The ICC declared that Ranasinghe’s motion to nominate an interim committee was a severe breach of its governance guidelines.
Nevertheless, the suspension was lifted on Sunday after Fernando, in December, annulled the gazette issued by Ranasinghe.
