Sri Lanka Cricket is close to appointing Haroon Lorgat, the former ICC chief executive, as a consultant to assist the board in revamping its domestic cricket structure, as well as potentially advising it on finances and governance.
An SLC official said that negotiations have been going well and they are optimistic about bringing Lorgat on board.
SLC, who have faced a turbulent 15 months, are interested in Lorgat's services because of his vast experience in cricket administration.
Lorgat served as ICC chief executive for four years before stepping down at the end of June.
He has also held several posts in South African cricket, including that of chairman of selectors, and was on the finance and organising committees for the 2003 World Cup.
His appointment is likely to be for a period of three or four months.
