Thilanga Sumathipala who is contesting for the Chairmanship of Sri Lanka Cricket was present before the 3 member panel appointed by the Minister of Sports.

This was with regard to the allegations that have been levelled against him.

3 leading sports clubs in the country filed objections against Thilanga Sumathipala after he handed over nominations for the SLC election.

Accordingly Sports Minister Mahindananda Aluthgamage decided to appoint a 3 member committee to look in to the charges.

The proceedings were held under the patronage of the Secretary to the Ministry of Sports throughout over 2 hours.

Baduraliya, Sebastian Night and Kegalle Sports clubs filing objections against Thilanga Sumathipala stated that he was involved in the Race by Race betting trade, an owner of a media institution and the representative of a sports equipment brand and hence was unsuitable to contest for a post at the SLC.

Sports Minister Mahindananda Aluthgamage made a special statement in parliament recently with regard to this matter.

However, sports fans share the following views with regard to the candidature of Thilanga Sumathipala.

Cricket veterans point out that in such a backdrop Thilanga Sumathipala coming forward to contest at the SLC election is unethical.
