Sri Lanka regains ICC Status

Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) regained its ICC Status, after nine months of being relegated to observer status, SLC President Shammi Silva tweeted.

SLC’s newly elected President, Shammi Silva, yesterday participated in the ongoing ICC Board Meetings in Dubai as a fully recognised Director of the ICC Board as per its constitution, the SCL said in a statement.

Mr Silva’s participation and contribution at the ICC Board Meeting ensured Sri Lanka Cricket regaining its full member status of the ICC; after nine months of being relegated to observer status.

The ICC does not recognise political or other appointments and/or interference to national bodies as legitimate (Article 2.4 (C) (D) of the ICC Constitution) and SLC was on the verge of suspension if a legitimate administration was not elected by the end of February 2019.
