SLC denies giving Faiszer 800 free tickets for his supporters

The Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) board today denied reports it allocated 800 free tickets to Sports Minister Faiszer Musthapa to give his supporters.

In a media statement, SLC said that certain parties have claimed that Sri Lanka Cricket had made an allocation of 800 tickets to Musthapa to be allocated to his supporters to witness the just concluded Sri Lanka vs South Africa Series.

However, SLC said that such allegations are baseless, as Sri Lanka Cricket only allocated tickets to the Minister of Sports to accommodate people at the ‘Minister’s Box,’ which is reserved for the Minister of Sports, during International Matches. (Colombo Gazette)
