Sri Lanka Cricket to call in auditors

New chairman to call in independent auditors to stamp out corruption in the game

The new chairman of Sri Lanka Cricket is to call in external auditors to
scrutinise the body’s accounts in an attempt to stamp out corruption.

Arjuna Ranatunga, who has previously been critical of businessmen heading the
cricket board, said he planned to bring in independent auditors as soon as
possible.

Since the late 1990s, Sri Lankan governments have several times dismissed
democratically elected cricket bodies on grounds of financial impropriety.

‘My hands are clean. I will never try to make money out of the game’s
administration,’ said Ranatunga, 44.

He also suggested the game may be professionalised in Sri Lanka. It is still
based on an amateur system, meaning players cannot earn a living from playing
unless they are picked for their country.
