Sri Lanka Players Sign Contracts Till End of 2021

The Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) has revealed that Angelo Mathews is not among the 18 cricketers who have signed men’s national contracts. It went on to say that the contract presented this time was “unchanged” from the previous one, which the players had rejected due to a lack of transparency.

In May, SLC announced a five-point grading system, reducing the number of contracts from 32 to merely 24. As disagreements over the form of the contracts remained, the players agreed to sign “tour contracts” for their next series against England and India as a temporary solution.

The National Contract

In May, SLC announced a five-point grading system, reducing the number of contracts from 32 to merely 24. As disagreements over the form of the contracts remained, the players agreed to sign “tour contracts” for their next series against England and India as a temporary solution.

“The players were chosen under four categories and were nominated by the Selection Panel, based on a set of criteria such as Performance, Fitness, Leadership/Seniority, Professionalism/Code of Conduct, and Future/Adaptability,” SLC explained in a release.

“The criteria and the allocation of points to individual players were shared among the players before they signed the contracts.” Danushka Gunathilaka, Niroshan Dickwella, and Kusal Mendis were not eligible because they are presently serving a ban.

  • Kusal Perera,
  • Dimuth Karunaratne,

  • Dasun Shanaka,
  • Wanindu Hasaranga,
