SLC look to curb players' interaction with media

May 27, 2012 16:02 IST

Sri Lanka Cricket is annoyed with an interview of Kumar Sangakkara that got published in a newspaper and is set to tighten the noose as far players' interaction with the media is concerned.

According to the new regulation that is likely to be set in place soon, Sri Lankan players will have to obtain prior permission from SLC CEO Ajith Jayasekera before speaking to the media.

A letter to this effect is to be drafted by Jayasekera, in consultation with SLC lawyer Harsha Amarasekera, and sent to all the contracted players, ESPNcricinfo reported.

The executive committee of SLC had also decided to write a letter to former captain Kumar 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".
