The third and final match of the Sri Lanka - England Test series is reportedly uncertain to be held at the Pallekele ground in Kandy. Accordingly, the match would more likely to be held at Colombo P. Sarawanamuttu grounds.
Reports say that the circumstance has occurred with cause of the reckless actions of the Sports Ministry and the Sri Lanka Cricket Board (SLC).
The SLC has failed to locate a suitable hotel for lodging the players from both sides, and what they proposed was to provide a hotel in Dambulla area. However, the Sri Lankan Cricket players have opposed the suggestion, and told that two-way travelling between Dambulla and Pallekele ground for five days would be an obstacle to the match. Accordingly, the cricketers have refused the suggestion by the SLC, and probably the match would be held in Colombo.
The reason for the crisis is that the SLC has not yet settled the charges for the hotels that were booked for the previous tournaments in Kandy. The relevant hotel has refused to provide accommodations without receiving the settlements to previous charges, and apparently, the SLC has been too insolvent to settle the charges.
