ICC suspends Sri Lanka Cricket Board amid World Cup, second country in the fourth year


Sri Lanka Cricket Board: The difficulties for Sri Lankan cricket are not showing any signs of diminishing between the World Cup 2023. Earlier, after the poor performance of the team, all the members of the Sri Lankan Cricket Board were dismissed. On November 7, the Sri Lankan Court had dismissed all the officials of the board. Now the board has been suspended by the ICC. Sri Lanka became the second country to be suspended by the ICC in the last four years.

Earlier in 2019, ICC had banned Zimbabwe Cricket Board. The Zimbabwe Cricket Board was also suspended due to government interference. Government interference in the cricket board also became the reason for the suspension of the Sri Lanka Cricket Board. Now further decisions regarding the Sri Lanka Cricket Board will be taken by the ICC in the meeting to be held on 21st November.

Let us tell you that the Indian team, which was in poor form, all out the Sri Lankan team for 55 runs in the 33rd league match of the World Cup 2023 on 02 November and won by 302 runs. Sri Lankan Sports Minister Roshan Ranasinghe did not like the team’s performance against India. On Monday, November 06, he dismissed the entire cricket board and made Arjun Ranatunga, the former captain who made Sri Lanka the world champion in 1996, as the interim member of the board.

Sri Lanka’s performance was very poor in the World Cup

Sri Lanka started the tournament with a defeat. The team lost the first match against South Africa by 102 runs. After this, the team had to face defeat against Pakistan by 6 wickets and against Australia by 5 wickets.
