“We had initially finalized to host three matches. But after some negotiations with the Indian Cricket Board, we managed to increase the matches to six which will enable us to raise the additional US $6 million in revenue. SLC will be able to provide a large income to the country with Sports Minister Namal Rajapaksa’s vision of building a strong economy through Sports.”

Also, the allowances haven’t changed, and they want to keep them the same as in the future, with a lot of frequent games approaching in 2021.

“We missed out on several tours as scheduled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, yet we did not reduce the monthly salaries and allowances of our cricketers. None of their facilities were deducted either. In the face of this situation, the cricketers should give out their best display to the country.”
