A major issue recently afflicted Sri Lanka Cricket. The International Cricket Council (ICC) immediately suspended Sri Lanka Cricket’s (SLC) membership. This has perplexed and startled cricket fans and analysts alike.
According to the ICC, SLC did not follow its guidelines. They claimed that SLC did not conduct its operations autonomously and received too much government intervention. This is a severe problem that calls into question the way cricket is managed in Sri Lanka.
We have no idea what will happen next. The ICC Board of Directors will meet on November 21 to determine the terms of the suspension. This is a significant development for Sri Lankan cricket, and we must wait and see how serious the implications will be.
The ICC Under-19 Men’s Cricket World Cup is scheduled in Sri Lanka in early 2024. With the ban, it’s unclear if Sri Lanka can still host or participate. Everyone is anxious to see what the ICC Board will do with this major competition.
This suspension follows Sri Lanka’s underwhelming performance in the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023. They have only won two of their nine matches and are at the bottom of the standings. Things aren’t looking good for them with three more matches to play.
The ICC Board meeting will make the significant decisions on the suspension. Cricket fans are eager to learn what will become of Sri Lankan cricket. The meeting will determine the terms of the ban and Sri Lanka’s future in international cricket.
The primary issue is that cricket boards should be autonomous and make their judgments. The ICC expects all cricket boards to adhere to this provision. This is critical for cricket to be fair and effective everywhere.
