No SL player signs contract till now, deadline extended

This new development has been confirmed by Aravinda de Silva, the chairman of the Cricket Technical Advisory Committee.

Speaking exclusively over the telephone from Sri Lanka, he said, “Because of the current lockdown situation in the country, we have extended the deadline of June 3.”

“As far as I know, no player has come forward to sign the contract.”

“We are clear in our minds. The players have been given two options. Either you sign the contract or accept the tour-by-tour contract.”

Aravinda de Silva also defended the SLC’s decision to send Tom Moody on an England tour.

“It is wrongly presumed that Moody has been hired only to groom players for the future and search talent in the country. He is a Director of cricket and his main job is also to ensure the smooth functioning of the national team, he has to share his experience to the team/s, evaluate the performance of the coaching staff etc.”
