Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) appointed Dr.Jayantha Dharmadasa to fill the vacant space of K.Mathivanan as the successor for the post of Vice President from immediate effect, after Mathivanan tendered his resignation by a letter addressed to Mohan de Silva, Secretary, SLC yesterday.

Mathivan tendered his resignation by a formal letter copied to President, SLC, Secretary, Sports Ministry and Director General of sport without citing any reasons.

But later he put out a media release citing various reasons for his resignation, which the SLC officials denied and stated that it was a ‘Baseless allegation’ leveled at them and is fabricated to infuse disrepute to SLC.
