President Ranil Wickremesinghe says the best solution for the Sri Lanka Cricket crisis is to implement the draft constitution for the cricket governing body proposed in the report compiled by the committee headed by Justice K.T. Chitrasiri.

His remarks came during a meeting held with the ruling party MPs at the parliamentary complex on Thursday.

Speaking further, the Head of State reiterated that he remains impartial in this matter, adding that he is “on the side of cricket”.

The President is of the view that appointing interim committees is a band-aid solution and will not suffice to address the issue adequately.

The ‘Chitrasiri Committee Report’ on the new SLC constitution was handed over yesterday to the Minister Ali Sabry-led Cabinet sub-committee appointed by the Sports Minister to look into the issue.

This new draft constitution suggests a comprehensive overhaul of the method for appointing members to the SLC board, as well as changes in its composition, administration and management.

According to the proposed constitution, the SLC’s board would be governed by a Board of Directors comprised of 18 members, each appointed for a 4-year term. These directors will be entrusted with the authority to make policy decisions and the power to execute these decisions will be vested in a Director-General appointed by the Board of Directors.
