Colombo, May 27 (bdnews24.com) - Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) are annoyed after an interview of Kumar Sangakkara was published in a newspaper and are set to tighten the noose as far players` interaction with the media is concerned, reports PTI.
According to the new regulation that is likely to be set in place soon, players will have to obtain prior permission from SLC CEO Ajith Jayasekera before speaking to the media.
A letter is to be drafted by Jayasekera, in consultation with SLC lawyer Harsha Amarasekera, and sent to all the contracted players.
The executive committee of SLC had also decided to write a letter Sangakkara, regarding an interview he had given to a newspaper, 'reminding him of his obligations' and stressing 'that such actions will not be tolerated in future'.
Sangakkara had previously come under the scrutiny of the cricket administration in Sri Lanka, when he had delivered the MCC`s Spirit of Cricket Lecture in England, in which he has said that the establishment was run by 'partisan cronies'.
