Sidath Wettimuny & Prasanna Jayawardena
This scheme of reform was formulated by Sidath Wettimuny and his Interim Committtee way back in October/November 2015 about two months before their term was over. Sidath received guidance from Prasanna Jayawardena, an eminent lawyer (PC). It is based on studies of the South African and Irish constitutions which were recommended by the ICC (to Sidath) as a good basis for a new constitution. Sidath spoke to both Presidents of those respective countries while he was at the ICC meetings and got their views.It was presented to Ranil Wickremasinghe and his Sports Minister, Dayasiri Jayasekera (according to the Sunday Times, 17 July 2016). It appears to have been pigeon holed.
THE PURPOSE OF THIS CONCEPT PAPER:
- Why Sri Lanka Cricket [“SLC”] should be reformed;
- The present structure of SLC;
- Recommend the manner of achieving the necessary reforms by: (a) incorporating SLC [which is presently an Unincorporated Association]; (b) introducing a better electoral process; and (c) improving the management structure of SLC.
