Minister Musthapha invites former ‘greats’ to be consultants

After receiving the letter from Sri Lanka Cricket on the West Indies tour and the way forward for SLC from the CEO, Minister of Provincial Councils, Local Government and Sports, Faiszer Musthapha has invited former legends Kumar Sangakkara, Mahela Jayawardene, Muthiah Muralitharan, Aravinda de Silva and Roshan Mahanama to be consultants.

The Minister said, “As a result of the court order issued today (June 14), we will not be able to hold the SLC elections as quickly as I thought we could. I am compelled to steer SLC to the best of my ability. In that context I will seek support of all. On the appeal made by the selectors, I will be requesting Sanga, Mahela, Murali, Aravinda, and Roshan to be consultants to SLC on matters relating to high performance of SLC.

“The selectors have also requested me to invite Murali as an advisor to the spin bowling department which would benefit the spinners to perform at the highest level. Together with Chandika (Hathurusingha) as head coach of the team, I am hoping that these gentlemen will be able to bring back the fame and glory, once enjoyed by Sri Lanka when they were together as a team on the field,” the Minister concluded.
