Nishantha goes to court to stop Thilanga from contesting

Former Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) board General Secretary Nishantha Ranatunga today filed a petition in court seeking an injunction to prevent Thilanga Sumathipala from contesting the Sri Lanka Cricket board elections.

Ranatunga, who is also contesting for the post of President at the elections scheduled to be held this week, says Sumathipala is not qualified to hold the post of President.

Ranatunga, the younger brother of World Cup winning former Sri Lanka captain Arjuna, was SLC secretary from 2009 to 2015.  (Colombo Gazette)
