Why is Sri Lanka Cricket in public-relations overdrive?

The public seems to understand a Sumathipala presidency is the product of SLC's broken constitution, which grants board votes to an array of clubs and vestigial cricketing institutions. Many, perhaps, have guessed he is attempting to use SLC as a political tool, with which he might regain...

Sumathipala is a politician and what politicians in SL are known best for is propaganda. More than PR this is a propagandist at work.

So the only complaint against Thilanga is that he loves publicity? No mention of slashed wages for players, the deceitful removal of Suriyawewa debt to make the accounts look good, and other wasteful spending and corruption. Players have to take a pay cut and others have lost contracts totally all in order to pay Hashan, Gura and other jokers in there now!!

Yahapalanaya was not allowed into SLC's doors by the ICC. When Nishantha was finally removed, ICC intervened to get the Wettimuny interim administration out by calling for an election. Dave Richardson should be exposed and kicked out for what he did. Nishantha​ did not win but we got a politician with terrible crimes and allegations against his name to head SLC. From the frying pan into the fire. Island Cricket or Cricinfo should try and make the public aware of the facts.
