COLOMBO, Nov 20: Sri Lanka’s sports law must be amended to end political interference in cricket administration to sustain and improve the game in the country, a report from a former top administrator said on Tuesday.

The report by Haroon Lorgat, the former chief executive of the International Cricket Council (ICC), was released on Tuesday and suggests changing the law to comply with international standards.

The law currently bars any international team chosen by selectors being announced without the minister’s approval.

Lorgat was hired by Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) to suggest improvements and he has identified nine issues affecting the game and given 24 recommendations to address them.—AP
