Sri Lanka has regained full member status of the International Cricket Council (ICC).
The Sri Lanka Cricket Board said that the SLC’s newly elected President Shammi Silva participated in the ICC Board Meetings ongoing in Dubai today as a fully recognized Director of the ICC Board as per its constitution.
Silva’s participation and contribution at the ICC Board Meeting ensured Sri Lanka Cricket regained its full member status of the ICC after nine months of being relegated to Observer status, SLC said.
The ICC does not recognize political or other appointments and/or interference to national bodies as legitimate (Article 2.4 (C) (D) of the ICC Constitution) and SLC was on the verge of suspension if a legitimate administration was not elected by the end of February 2019. (Colombo Gazette)
