Another cricket official enrolled for US$100,000

A foreign consultant has been employed by Sri Lanka Cricket with an agreement to pay him a monthly remuneration of US$100,000 (Rs. 13 million).

SLC that is already in debt to the tune of US$70 million (Rs.9100 million) enrolled Haroon Lorgat who stepped down as the ICC CEO in June 2012. Lorgat, a Chartered Accountant, is of Indian descent, his family originating from a small village in north western India called Manekpore.

Despite SLC stating they were looking for means to get over the financial crisis, according to analysts Logart has joined SLC to mark time until he reports for his duties at Cricket South Africa in January, 2013 and nothing much could be expected from him.

SLC did not receive much income despite spending much on political decisions to construct new cricket grounds at Pallekalle and Sooriyawewa and modernized R. Premadsa Stadium.

SLC, that spent colossal amounts to maintain officials, was also confronted with a crisis of not being able to pay the salaries of players.

It is unbeleivable that Sri Lanka cricket has agreed to pay a foreign consultant US$ 100,000 a month as his salary. Tell us please who are the people who agreed to pay this Salary to this man. I bet President Rajapaksa 's official salary is less than that although he can get what he wants.What is the monthly average income that the cricket board gets? Are the people going to get into more debt by employing this man. No CEO in Sri Lanka gets this sort of Salary . There is some hanky panky going on in this deal . The President should ask a few questions from the cricket Board.

This is a criminal waste of tax payers money to engage an ex accountant from overseas to put the financial dealimngs of the SLC right.Stop paying massive salaries to administrators, Stop useless their official trips overseas. Stop wasting money on stadiums mostly occupied by stray dogs and Beggars.Dont we have good Accountants.? .This mans Salary is higher than an accontant gets in Australia, The U.S. or even the U.N.

Any idiot would know that most of the money will be channeled through this guy to build palaces for the Rajapakses in India or to invest in other ventures. Crooked Indians gain; stupid Lankans lose!!
