SLC to earn $12 million from India’s tour
“We had initially finalised to host three matches. But after some negotiations with the Indian Cricket Board we managed to increase the matches to six which will enable us to raise an additional US $6 million in revenue,” said Silva.
“SLC will be able to provide a large income to the country with Sports Minister Namal Rajapaksa’s vision of building a strong economy through Sports,” added Silva.
“We missed out on several tours as scheduled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, yet we did not reduce the monthly salaries and allowances of our cricketers.”
“None of their facilities were deducted either. In the face of this situation the cricketers should give out their best display to the country,” concluded Silva.
