Kumar also turns down invite as past proposals were ignored

Former Sri Lanka cricket captain Kumar Sangakkara has also turned down an invitation to be part of the Sri Lanka Cricket administration calling it a “waste of time”.

In a letter to the Sports Minister, Sangakkara has said that the former Sports Minister had also sought his assistance yet he wasted six months in an advisory committee as none of his recommendations were taken seriously.

Sangakkara said in his letter that what is needed for Sri Lanka Cricket is not temporary fixes but complete change.

Among the changes he proposes is amendments to the Sports Law and Sri Lanka Cricket Constitution.

Earlier former cricketers Mahela Jayawardena, Muttiah Muralitharan and Roshan Mahanama had also turned down the offer to join the SLC administration. (Colombo Gazette)
