Sports Minister Mahindananda Aluthgamage today asked Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) board to schedule an enquiry committee. A retired female judge will led this enquiry committee to investigation into allegations that officials in women’s cricket administration demanded sexual bribes to give chances in the national team.

Initially there was no executive committee resolution taken to hold an enquiry except to hold an initial exploration to determine if there is any merit in the assertion reported by the media.

The sex scam had plunged Sri Lankan cricket after recent media reports claimed that women cricketers allegedly complained of demands from certain selectors to be satisfied if they wanted a spot in the team.

Aluthgamage has ordered Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) secretary Nishantha Ranatunga to appoint a committee and conduct an immediate investigation into the allegations, released in a statement today. Aluthgamage added that the allegations are disparaging and damaging the international facade of the country and in addition to the damage it causes to the well-being of women’s cricket in Sri Lanka.

Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) had appointed its own inspection enquiry into the assertions when the matter was reported by local media.

Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) said that a four member committee has been appointed to analysis the media reports of Sri Lanka Women’s Cricket team management and national selectors allegedly seeking sexual bribes from players in order to be chosen for their national team last week. A 4 member enquiry panel including Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) vice-president Mohan de Silva, Secretary Nishantha Ranatunga, assistant secretary Hirantha Perera and chief men’s national selector Sanath Jayasuriya will take care the matter.

 Chief Executive Officer Ashley de Silva had been said as saying in the local media that review will be built on the local media reports, since there have been no complaints, thus far, Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC). An emergency meeting was held on 27th October to direct awareness on the media reports. Silva added that there is no such thing called an inquiry in link with this matter. What they do there is a review on the reports, since this is a serious allegation.
