Minister of Sports Dayasiri Jayasekara says that Sri Lanka Cricket elections will go ahead as planned.

The SLC elections are to take place on Sunday and several incidents surrounding the elections were reported in the recent days.

The Supreme Court permitted several rejection nominations to contest the Sri Lanka Cricket elections on Dec. 31, 2015.

As an issue arose over the voting rights of the Matale District Cricket Association; the two votes they own were cancelled. The minister added that on Sunday at the AGM it will be decided as to whether the rejected nominations can contest the SLC elections as per the Supreme Court order.

The Police Financial Crimes Investigations Division has been asked by the Minister of Sports to investigate an attempt to convince two Sri Lankan cricketers to fix a match.
