DTH News : Sri Lanka recalls players from IPL
Advertisement
#1
Colombo, April 12 (AFP): Sri Lanka's sports authorities on Tuesday ordered its cricketers playing in the ongoing Indian Premier League to return home for training ahead of next month's tour of England.

Sports Minister Mahinadananda Althugamage said he wanted team members to prioritise the national side over the IPL, which is financially lucrative for players.

"In future, national cricket players can participate in foreign tournaments only in a manner that will not affect practices of the Sri Lankan national team," the ministry said in a statement.

It said those who are selected for the three-Test series in England will have to return home for practices despite their commitments in the ongoing IPL Twenty20 tournament.

Former skipper Kumar Sangakkara and his deputy Mahela Jayawardene are among 11 Sri Lankan national players in the IPL and at least five of them are tipped to be included in the squad for England.

The statement did not say how the players will be penalised if they did not attend practices as required under a new sports ministry decree, but official sources said they were likely to be dropped if they did not comply.

Sri Lanka cricket has seen a spate of resignations following the side's defeat in the World Cup final against India earlier this month.

So what will be fate of the ongoing IPL matches. These players might have signed some contract with IPL. Can they withdraw just like that!! (and ofcourse the big financial loss to the players)..?

i think its totally mismanagement by Sri lankan Board. They know almost a year back that when they have to visit and where as a national Cricket team. They should have given notice to their palyers when they have allowed them to be in auction. Now when players are there into the contract it gonna be big loss for them and their respected IPL teams.
