Will Sri Lanka Lose ICC Full Membership? - Faiszer Meets ICC Top Executives In Dubai To Discuss Prevailing Issues

Sports Minister Faiszer Mustapha today met with the International Cricket Council (ICC) Chairman Shashank Manohar and CEO David Richardson in Dubai to discuss the current status of administration of Sri Lanka Cricket. 

Sri Lanka Cricket, the top governing body for the country's most popular sport, has into various issues with elections being postponed due to multiple issues. 

The entity is now placed under a competent authority appointed by the Sports Minister. The absence of a properly elected board of governance  has given rise to various administrative issues, Asian Mirror learns. 

The ICC has asked Sri Lanka to hold elections for Sri Lanka Cricket board within six months. Failing to do so will result in ICC reconsidering Sri Lanka's membership status in the ICC, the Council said in a statement.

"The Board agreed to allow a representative of the Sri Lankan Sports Minister to sit as an observer to the ICC Board and Full Council, but requested that elections for Sri Lanka Cricket are held within six months, failing which SLC's Membership status would be considered," the ICC statement, released two months ago, said. 

It is in this context that the Sri Lankan Sports Minister today held discussions with the ICC's top executives. 

The timeline for the SLC election has not yet been announced by the country's Sports Ministry.
