- Sri Lanka board earns big money from series
Colombo: Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) has received a huge amount from the recently concluded limited overs series between India and Sri Lanka. The tour was completed with T20 matches even after Kunal Pandya was hit by Corona.
India won the ODI series 2-1 while Sri Lanka won the T20I series by equal margin. Its secretary Mohan de Silva said that playing three ODIs and as many T20 matches has earned SLC $14.5 million (Rs 107 crore) in revenue.
De Silva was quoted by the Daily FT as saying that as per the FTP (Future Tour Schedule) the tour was for only three ODIs, but our president Shammi Silva persuaded the BCCI (Board of Control for Cricket in India) to give us an additional three T20Is. We were successful, as a result of which we benefited. This was made possible because of our relationship with the Indian Cricket Board. We got $14.5 million from broadcasting and other rights like Maidan, etc.’
De Silva also thanked the BCCI and the Indian team for completing the tour despite the Covid-19 case. Sri Lanka will now host South Africa from September 2-14 for three ODIs and three T20Is.
