competent authority

COLOMBO: The Sri Lankan central government on Friday appointed a "competent authority" to supervise day-to-day affairs of Sri Lanka Cricket, a day after after SLC president Thilanga Sumathipala’s term came to an end.  

The competent authority is headed by the secretary of Sri Lanka's sports ministry, Kamal Padmasiri.

In the meantime board elections for a new administration have been delayed following a court order, but sports minister Faiszer Mustapha told local media they would be held before 31 July.
