The CEO of Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) Ashley De Silva has made an astonishing request to increase the salary of the SLC employees, learns 'Sri Lanka Mirror'.
It is said that he made the particular suggestion claiming that the salary of the SLC employees have not been increased for the past 2 years.
However, 'Sri Lanka Mirror' learns that through the salary increment granted two years ago more than 20 individuals including Ashley have had salaries increased by 100%.
It is a known secret that the close acquaintances of former SLC Secretary Nishantha Ranatunga were granted extensive salary increments.
It has also been said that through the recent salary formula introduced by Ashley he was to gain a bonus of Rs. 150,000.
However, the members of SLC Interim Committee have strongly opposed Ashley's new suggestion and decided to suspend it.
