Sana-Gura caught in Thilanga’s plot? Featured

Selection Committee chairman of Sri Lanka Cricket - Sanath Jayasuriya is said to be unhappy about Asanka Gurusinghe being given the power to select the team during a tour, ‘Sri Lanka Mirror’ learns.

However, critics of the game have raised doubts whether the move was a deliberate plan by SLC President - Thilanga Sumathipala to make Jayasinghe and Gurusinghe clash.

Earlier, before the Australian tour, Sanath had tendered his resignation due to the constant interference of Sumathipala over his selections. Subsequently, the entire selection committee resigned.

However, Sanath withdrew his resignation after Thilanga held talks with Sanath and pledged not to interfere anymore.
