Sri Lankan ODI Cricketers Turned Back At Airport Under Sports Ministers Directives

December 05, 2017

In a farcical turn of events, nine Sri Lankan players who were supposed to leave for India for the ODI series, were turned back at the airport following directives from Sports Minister Dayasiri jayasekera.

The development took place after the Sports Minister claimed that the list of names of the players leaving for the ODI did not come for his approval. 

The ODI series between India and Sri Lanka is scheduled to start after the ongoing Test series.

It is still not clear what led to the communication gap between the Minister and the Sri Lanka Cricket. 

It was learnt that the players were highly dissatisfied with the way they were treated at the airport.
