The executive committee of the Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) has decided to conduct an immediate inquiry into the claims that the members of Sri Lankan women’s team management and national selectors had to be bribed sexually for selection in the national team.

According to the dailymirror.lk, the players had to not only sexually bribe the officials for being selected in the national side but also for retaining their places. The reports regarding this matter had surfaced in the local media last week, and two members of the committee felt it needed immediate action.

The vice president of Sri Lanka Cricket, Mohan de Silva, secretary Nishantha Ranatungs, assistant secretary Hirantha Perera and chief selector of the men’s side and former international cricketer Sanath Jayasuriya have been appointed to investigate into the matter.

The inquiry will be conducted by Thursday and national selectors, team officials including the manager and coach as well as the members of the national side will be called to give the evidence.
