Big changes are taking place in Sri Lankan cricket
It is noteworthy that recently Sri Lankan cricket has been in a lot of controversies. There have been many allegations of corruption in the board for the last few years. Many questions were also raised regarding the inaction of the board. This issue was being raised even in the Parliament of Sri Lanka. During this time, cricket fans were also seen protesting outside the office of Sri Lanka Cricket Board. After this, when the Sri Lankan team performed very disappointingly in the World Cup, there was more chaos. Recently, there have been many changes one after the other in Sri Lankan cricket. The appointment of Sanath Jayasuriya is also one of these changes.
