The International Cricket Council (ICC) on Friday suspended Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) due to government interference.

The Sri Lanka government had sacked the SLC following the team’s disastrous show at the World Cup, where it lost seven of the nine games.

SLC was reinstated by the court of appeal, thus further deepening the crisis in the country’s cricket governing body.

On Thursday, a joint government and opposition resolution in parliament demanded the resignation of the SLC’s management.
