ICC Suspends Sri Lanka Cricket: Board to Decide Fate Amid Autonomy Breach
In a Friday night statement, the International Cricket Council (ICC) revealed that the Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) breached membership obligations, specifically in managing its affairs autonomously and free from government interference. The ICC Board is set to convene on November 21 to determine the conditions of suspension, shedding light on the future course of action. With Sri Lanka slated to host the ICC Under-19 Men’s Cricket World Cup in January and February 2024, the cricketing world awaits ICC’s decision on this pivotal matter. Meanwhile, Sri Lanka’s men’s team, having faced challenges at the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023, looks to rebound, sitting at No.8 with three league phase matches remaining.
