Jayantha Dharmadasa has been appointed as the new Vice President of Sri Lanka Cricket following the resignation of K Mathivanan from his position.

Issuing a statement, SLC said the Executive Committee at its Emergency Meeting held this afternoon, approved the new appointment.

Mathivanan who held the post of Vice President of Sri Lanka Cricket tendered his resignation today and the Cricket Board has accepted the resignation.

Sri Lanka Cricket said the resignation of Mathivanan comes in the wake of the recent decision of Executive Committee to hold an inquiry against him for indulging in unethical practices in his capacity as an Office Bearer.

However, issuing a statement, Mathivanan said he tendered his resignation due to concerns surrounding the administration of SLC.

Mathivanan noted that since he has not been tasked with any major responsibilities he decided to step down.
