The council members left after former Sports Minister Namal Rajapaksa resigned from his ministerial post amid the country’s political and economic crises. The council was previously chaired by former Sri Lanka captain Mahila Jayawardena. The council had 14 members in the past.

Arjuna Ranatonga spoke with malicious intent:

In a statement, SLC said that after carefully considering Ranatonga’s “false, insulting and distorted comment” from a recent media interview, the SLC’s Executive Committee decided to file a lawsuit against the former World Cup-winning cricket captain at an emergency meeting on Monday.

According to the statement, Ranatunga “He spoke with malicious intent, causing damage to the goodwill and reputation of SLC, and has knowingly made public comments by making false and defamatory charges against the Sri Lanka Cricket Executive Committee.”
