Mumbai, The International Cricket Council (ICC) Board has taken a significant step by suspending Sri Lanka Cricket’s membership, effective immediately. This decision comes after a meeting held today where the board concluded that Sri Lanka Cricket has seriously breached its obligations as an ICC member.
According to International Cricket Council (ICC), the core issue leading to this suspension is the failure of Sri Lanka Cricket to adhere to the ICC’s requirement for member nations. Specifically, the organization has not managed its affairs autonomously, nor has it ensured freedom from government interference in the governance, regulation, and administration of cricket in Sri Lanka.
The ICC Board will determine the specific conditions of this suspension in the coming days. This decision marks a significant moment for cricket governance and highlights the ICC’s commitment to upholding the autonomy of its member nations in managing their internal affairs.
