Harin to appoint interim committee to SLC!

Newly appointed Sports minister - Harin Fernando says that an interim committee will be appointed to the country's cricket governing body - Sri Lanka Cricket.

Speaking at his first media briefing as the sports minister today (21), Mr. Fernando said that it cannot be said for certain whether the SLC election would be postponed.

However, he added that an individual recognised by the entire country as well as by the ICC would head the interim committee.

Noting that his predecessor - Faiszer Mustapha had obtained time until Feb. 09 to hold the election, minister Fernando said that he hoped to meet with the ICC on either Dec. 26 or 27.

"More time is needed to make the SLC corruption-free, he added.

However, the prevailing conditions should be assessed and the decisions taken by the previous government should be looked at as well, he further said.
