After being faced with displeasure from authorities and all the cricket lovers due to the present debacle in Sri Lanka cricket the national cricket selection committee has resigned.

When contacted, the Sports Minister confirmed this. The Sports Minister Dayasiri Jayasekera said that the selectors have cited several reasons for their decision.

The SL Cricket Selection Committee is comprised of Sanath Jayasuriya (Chairman), Ranjit Madurasinghe, Romesh Kaluwitharana, Asanka Gurusinghe and Eric Upashantha.

According to the letter, the resignation will be effective from the 7th of September.

Sri Lanka cricket team suffered a number of humiliating defeats in the recent past and the cricket selectors were criticized for changing the players very often.

Since the appointment of the present selection committee on the 1st of May in 2016, the status of Sri Lanka cricket collapsed hugely.

Sri Lankan team only managed to win 3 games since then. The Lankan team also lost a one-day series to Zimbabwe for the first time.

During Sanath Jayasuriya’s tenure as the selection Committee chairman, Sri Lanka lost test match series to India and South Africa.

Sri Lanka team also lost a test match against Bangladesh for the first time.

During the 15 month tenure of the selection committee, 41 players have been used for 31 one-day internationals.

Meanwhile 30 players were used for T20 matches and 24 players for test matches.

Sri Lanka’s cricket ratings in ODI’s, T20’s and test matches have also drastically dropped.

Rotating players in such a manner clearly indicates the instability of the selection committee and lack of discipline.

As a result of continuous losses, the cricket fans protested against the cricket administration and the selection committee at the Pallekele grounds.

Amidst severe criticism from the general public, the selection committee led by Sanath Jayasuriya handed over the resignation letter to the Minister.
