Colombo: Mar 12, 2014
The ongoing row between the national players and the Sri Lanka Cricket board remained unresolved after a round of talks held on Wednesday. The SLC top brass met with the national squad players on Wednesday to discuss the issue and it was decided to refer the case to the SLC executive committee meeting to be held on Thursday.
The players had refused to sign the contracts forwarded to them by e-mail to Bangladesh where the team was playing in the Asia Cup.
The players have demanded a 20 per cent share of the ICC image rights income. SLC has refused to meet the demand, claiming that 58 per cent of the SLC’s income is spent on player payments.
