Ex Sri Lanka cricket captain Mahela Jayawardene rejected a request from Sri Lanka Cricket CEO, Ashley De Silva to obtain services of former cricket legends to serve in a committee on consultancy basis to advice SLC on matters related to cricketing areas.
Mr Ashley had written to Sri lankan Sports Minister Faiszer Musthapha requesting former legends to join the committee.
The former legends named along with Mahela Jayawardene were Kumar Sangakara, Aravinda De Silva and Roshan Mahanama. Spin legend Muthiah Muralidaran was also requested to join as bowling coach.
However tweeting his displeasure of working with Sri Lanka Cricket in previous occasions, Mahela said he does not have any trust in the system as previous recommendations were never implemented. He also issued a warning not to use them in order to buy time.
