Stay order against holding cricket board elections lifted

The Court of Appeal today lifted a stay order against holding the elections for the Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) board.

The stay order has been issued last month till today (June 14).

The lifting of the stay order will now allow the cricket board to hold the elections.

The election was to be held on the 31st May, 2018 but had to be postponed following the stay order issued by the Court of Appeal.

Earlier, former Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) board General Secretary Nishantha Ranatunga filed a petition in court seeking an injunction to prevent former President Thilanga Sumathipala from contesting the Sri Lanka Cricket board elections. (Colombo Gazette)
