Former ICC Boss Recommends End To Political Interference In Sri Lanka Cricket
Former Int'l Cricket Council CEO Haroon Lorgat has recommended action to review "laws that create potential for government interference" in Sri Lanka Cricket, according to the PTI. SLC obtained Lorgat's services as a special adviser in its bid to "revamp the administration with emphasis on financial management." His report was published on Tuesday. Lorgat recommended the need to "develop suitable high performance and indoor facilities and to clear the prevailing tensions, so that former national greats could serve as role models for emerging players." He also said that even though SLC can boast of a reasonably successful national team, it has faced "very challenging strategic, financial, administrative and operational issues." Lorgat recommended "long-term soft loans as means to overcome the SLC's present burdensome financial obligations" (PTI, 11/20).
