Former Sri Lankan Cricketer Roshan Mahanama has reportedly resigned from the Committee appointed to look into the affairs of Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC).
Accordingly, Mr. Roshan has informed the SLC that he will resign with effect from January 21, due to personal reasons.
Mahanama further informed that his decision does not reflect any unwillingness to work for the SLC and that he is ready to continue working for Cricket in the future.
The Committee was appointed by Sports and Youth Affairs Minister Namal Rajapaksa and was given a number of powers, including the preparation of annual contracts for Cricket players, the selection of coaches, and advising the SLC on local tournaments and cricket training. Former Cricketer Aravinda De Silva is its Chairman. Kumar Sangakkar, Muttiah Muralitharan and Roshan Mahanama were the other members of the Advisory Committee.
It was on the advice of this Committee were the much-talked-about player contracts subjected to amendments.
