Majority of the previous set of office bearers were voted in uncontested, will hold positions for two years

Shammi Silva has been elected Sri Lanka Cricket president again, after he and the majority of the previous set of office bearers were voted in uncontested. They will hold these positions for two years.

Silva’s faction, which includes vice-presidents Ravin Wickramaratne and Jayantha Dharmadasa, and secretary Mohan de Silva, did not face any challenges in this election, after an opposing faction withdrew on Tuesday. That faction had comprised Sri Lanka’s first Test captain Bandula Warnapura, Nishantha Ranatunga, and K Mathivanan, and had cited the “lack of a level playing field” in the elections process in the letter indicating their withdrawal. Both Ranatunga and Mathivanan, however, had held elected positions within SLC over the last 10 years.
