Dilith aiming for top cricket admin post?

Leading businessman - Dilith Jayaweera, who has sparked much controversy of late, is planning to enter cricket administration, 'Sri Lanka Mirror' learns.
As the initial step in this plan, several members of the Galle Cricket Club have launched a campaign to oust its current chairman Kumar Samarasinghe and replace him with Mr. Jayaweera.
It is said that Mr. Jayaweera has already pledged a Rs. 2 million sponsorship for the installation of a George Stuart name board at the club.

Galle Cricket Club ended last at the points table of the last inter-club first class cricket tournament after losing 7 of the 12 matches they played.
It is said that the coach and secretary of the Galle Cricket Club are behind the mission to appoint Mr. Jayaweera as chairman.
Former Chairmen of Sri Lanka Cricket - Thilanga Sumathipala, Jayantha Dharmadasa and Ana Punchihewa have all served as the Chairman of the Galle Cricket Club in the past.
