Posted by Admin On 10:08 AM

Lankan Sports Minister Mahindanda Aluthgamage has asked SLC bureaucrat to meet BCCI top brass to induce them in Indian players' contribution in the SLPL next month. Aluthgamage has asked the SLC Chairman DS de Silva and Secretary Nishantha Ranatunga to travel to India and sort out the subject at the initial with the BCCI administrator.

Following this, an assembly has been arranged on Wednesday to discuss the BCCI's objections to the Sri Lankan tournament.I have coach the chairman and the secretary to rush to India and talk into the Indian board official to permit their players to play in our contest,Aluthgamage was quoted as saying by 'Daily Mirror'.

The chairman will be straight arriving from London, where he has been with the Sri Lanka team, and Ranatunga will join him from Sri Lanka,he added. Aluthgamage is sure that an answer could be work out by the two Boards.

We have good rapport with Indian Board and I am sure the issue will be sorted out good-naturedly. The first edition of this competition will go ahead as scheduled (July 19 to August 4, 2011),said the minister.

He also elucidates that former Indian Premier League chairman Lalit Modi has nothing to do with the SLPL.I can say with 100 per cent declaration there is no role of Lalit Modi in SLPL. I am ignorant about his trip to this country, if he had made one two months ago,he explains.

The BCCI had refuse No opposition Certificates to 12 Indian players -- Praveen Kumar, Munaf Patel, Irfan Pathan, Dinesh Karthik, R Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Manoj Tiwary, Saurabh Tiwary, Umesh Yadav, Vinay Kumar, Manish Pandey and Paul Valthaty -- saying that SLPL is not a tournament to be organised by SLC but by a confidential party based in Singapore on its behalf.SLC had denied Indian Cricket Board's claims and said that the event is owned and accepted by SLC.
