    Clarification to certain Media Reports on ICC World Cup 2015

    March 02, 2015

    Sri Lanka Cricket has made the following clarification with regard to the news item that appeared in a certain newspaper under the caption "Sri Lanka unhappy with World Cup Scheduling".


    "SLC has sought the views from the Team Manager who stated that the writer has quoted him accurately when he has said "It would have been nice to have finished New Zealand before coming to Australia"  "It certainly is inconvenient. It’s tiring for the boys too. We’ve got to get up 7:00 in the morning tomorrow and be at the airport by 8:00. So it’s a long day for them tomorrow, and then we just have the day between, and probably we won’t practice (before the England game)".


    "The words and thoughts in the rest of the article is entirely the writers" stated the Team Manager.


    Sri Lanka Cricket has never complained at any stage  or has envied the schedule of other teams. All teams have similar busy weeks. The World Cup Schedule was announced months ago and SLC and its management team were very much aware of it, the SLC has further said.
