Thu, Aug 9, 2012, 07:12 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Aug 09, Colombo: Sports Minister of Sri Lanka Mahindananda Aluthgamage has said that he is not pleased with the performance of the country's cricket authority, Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC).

He has told the Parliament today that both he and the government are not satisfied with the performance of the SLC since it is working to entertain clubs rather than improving the sport in the country.

Aluthgamage has criticized the cricket authority in response to a question from the United National Party (UNP) parliamentarian, Ravi Karunanayaka over the profit or loss made by the SLC on the World Cup matches last year.

The Minister has revealed that SLC is playing about 800 players and the organization has paid Rs. 12.48 million in 2010 and Rs. 19.68 million in 2011 to the players.

He has said that the Ministry hopes to resolve the issues by the end of the year.
