It is with deep regret that we note certain media organizations have been misleading the public by accusing some of our players of misbehavior, during the recently concluded tour of Zimbabwe. As a responsible administrative body of Sri Lanka Cricket, we would like to state, that we do not take disciplinary action against players based on baseless allegations that are vindictive with an objective of character assassination of individuals.
We assure all of you that appropriate action will be taken against any player no matter if he is a senior or a junior, if they are found guilty after a proper inquiry.
Proper inquiries will be conducted for all official complains or accusations that are brought against any player be it at home or on overseas tours.
We shall greatly appreciate if you could give us the due publicity for this statement since we stand to be accused of not taking any action against our players on disciplinary grounds.
We wish to convey our disappointment that in view of World Cup 2011 and forthcoming bilateral series only such baseless stories are given prominence in some media which would be detrimental to players and the country
Thank you, for your corporation, and support for our sport.
