As the Sri Lankan cricket team’s disappointing performance in the World Cup continues to raise concerns, attention has turned to the immediate future of the country’s cricket administration. Reports suggest that a significant shake-up is on the horizon, with a focus on removing most members and coaches of the Sri Lankan cricket selection committee following the World Cup.
The Sri Lanka Cricket institute has expressed frustration over the failure of the selection committee and coaches to deliver on promises made after the team’s 50-run loss to the Indian cricket team in the Asia Cup final. There is a growing sense of dissatisfaction among sports fans worldwide, who question the consistent underperformance of the Sri Lankan team, particularly against the Indian side.
The Sri Lanka Cricket Board has initiated an inquiry into the team’s 55-run loss to India in the World Cup tournament, further fueling the debate over the team’s performance and the administration’s role.
Meanwhile, the Sports Minister has been resolute in calling for the immediate resignation of the cricket administration. He emphasizes that a change is urgently needed to rectify a system that appears more focused on personal gratification than the development of the sport, even when significant funds are allocated to cricket’s growth and improvement.
