School cricket officials in double game Featured

Officials of the Schools Cricket Association are involved in a double-game, drawing allowances from two places, reports.

They get monthly allowances and other support from Sri Lanka Cricket, but tell the education minister otherwise, and obtain advantages from him too.

Meeting the minister recently, school cricket officials asked that two of them be included in the junior selection committee and that separate pools be formed for different age categories in order to get foreign tours.

Executive committee members of the association receive a Rs. 45,000 allowance and a travelling allowance for each meeting, in addition to their Education Ministry paid salaries.

This is a violation of the ministry circulars.
