Sri Lanka Cricket AGM on March 28
By Marlon Fernandopulle
Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) will hold its Annual General Meeting and Elections to elect office bearers as scheduled on 28th March 2004 (Sunday). SLC Secretary Mohan de Silva confirmed this to Sunday Times that elections will be held on schedule and members will be notified as required, 30 days in advance and sent the Annual Report along with the Audited Accounts.

SLC President Thilanga Sumathipala is eligible for a re-election, however with the current legal battle that Sumathipala is faced, a big question mark lies ahead as to whether the incumbent President will seek a re-election. If Sumathipalas refrains from contesting, it is very likely that one of the current vice Presidents A. J. Muzamil or Aravinda de Silva will seek nominations for the top post from the Sumathipala camp.

Last year Thilanga Sumathipala brushed aside Arjuna Ranatunge by a thumping margin to be elected as President. In the absence of Sumathipala SLC is currently run by it's two vice Presidents Muzamil and Aravinda de Silva. Last week Muzamil signed an agreement with Taj Television granting that company television broadcasting rights for next months Australian tour while Aravinda de Silva gave away the Premier Knock-out trophy to the champions Bloomfield after the day-night final at the Premadasa Stadium.
