Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) has announced a record-breaking earning of 6.3 billion rupee in the year 2022, which is the sports body’s highest-ever annual net income, according to the national board.
The SLC said in a release, “The latest growth net income was mainly generated from four revenue segments which are international cricket, domestic cricket, sponsorship contracts and ICC annual member disbursements.”
SLC also disclosed the appointment of a 10-person committee by Sports Minister Roshan Ranasinghe to design a new SLC constitution.
Former national cricketers Charith Senanayake and Farveez Mahroof are among the legal luminaries on the panel, which is presided over by retired Supreme Court judge KT Chithrasiri. Ranasinghe claimed he had consulted the International Cricket Council (ICC) for direction and advice. Within the next two months, the new constitution is expected to be completed.
Issues about the overwhelming number of votes have led to charges of misconduct, including such as vote-buying to favour vested interests, making SLC elections for office bearers constantly tainted with controversy.
