The SLC said its Executive Committee today discussed the issue in a meeting with all stakeholders, past captains, past presidents and secretaries of SLC and Sports Ministry representative and decided to oppose the ICC's Revised Working Group Proposals.
     
The deliberations were based on the views of the SLC's legal advisory committee and the financial evaluations.
     
"We discussed the proposals with all Sri Lanka Cricket stakeholders. We were unanimous in deciding to oppose them," SLC chief Jayantha Dharmadasa said.
     
"There are many unnecessary elements in the proposals," SLC Secretary Nishantha Ranatunga said.
     
"Most of these proposals are detrimental to the well being of Sri Lanka Cricket," Thilanga Sumathipala, a former SLC boss and current government parliamentarian, said.
     
"I think the decision taken will be in the best interests of the game in Sri Lanka," former captain Aravinda de Silva said.
     
SLC Executive Committee was firmly of the view that all endeavours should be made to safeguard the current rights and privileges of the SLC as a Full Member of the ICC.
     
Cricket analysts said SLC's decision to oppose the proposals assumes significance as it had in the recent past relied heavily on BCCI support to stay afloat when hit by financial constraints.
