Loyalty card boomerangs on SLC

For quite some time now, there has been an attempt to sideline star batsman Kumar Sangakkara and calls for his removal from the shorter version of the game have come from top Sports Ministry officials in the name of blooding in young players. The Sports Ministry officials are spurred up by those running SLC, but the selectors to their credit have picked teams on merit. The recent controversy regarding which franchise Sanga should chose for the Champions League was highly unwarranted. Sanga didn’t take this one lying down. He fought back by replying an e-mail that SLC Secretary Nishantha Ranatunga had sent. Sangakkara’s e-mail reveals several unknown matters for fans and it gives a picture about the harassment he has gone through over the years. SLC President Jayantha Dharmadasa had to caution Sangakkara and the contents of his e-mail shows how much power Nishantha yields in cricket circles. These three e-mails that we publish in the best interest of the game are proof that cricket administration has become a one-man-show and the agony of world’s number one cricketer – Kumar Sangakkara.
