ICC to reconsider Sri Lanka’s membership if elections are not held

The International Cricket Council (ICC) has warned Sri Lanka that it will reconsider Sri Lanka’s membership status if elections for the Sri Lanka Cricket board are not held within six months.

The ICC Board today agreed to allow a representative of the Sri Lankan Sports Minister to sit as an observer to the ICC Board and Full Council, but requested that elections for Sri Lanka Cricket are held within six months, failing which SLC’s Membership status would be considered.

The decision was announced when the ICC today concluded its five-day Annual Conference in Dublin.

At the conference the ICC also got strong support for strengthening the ICC Code of Conduct.

“It has been a productive week of meetings here in Dublin and it has been good to have all ICC Members in attendance at our 75thAnnual Conference. I and my fellow Board directors were unanimous in supporting the recommendations of the Cricket Committee and Chief Executives’ Committee to drive improved behavior across our sport. It is vital that there is a strong deterrent to both players and administrators to ensure we have high standards of conduct in our game. We have more than a billion fans and we must not give any of them any reason to doubt the high levels of integrity within our sport,” ICC Chairman Shashank Manohar said. (Colombo Gazette)
