ICC looks into possible rule breach

United Arab Emirates (AP):

The International Cricket Council will seek an explanation from the Sri Lankan sports ministry for appointing an interim committee to run the country's cricket board.

The ICC board, which met yesterday, discussed whether the appointment of an interim committee in Sri Lanka Cricket "may be a breach of ICC's constitution which requires free and fair elections for office-bearers within member boards."

On the recommendation of its governance review committee, the ICC board says it will write to Sri Lanka's sports ministry "seeking a full and proper explanation of its intervention".

In late March, Sri Lanka's government dissolved the SLC and appointed Sidath Wettimuny as the head of a nine-member interim committee.

Hazard, Costa in running for player of year


Eden Hazard and Diego Costa have been included on a six-man shortlist for the player of the year in England after helping Chelsea win the League Cup and move to the brink of reclaiming the Premier League.

England striker Harry Kane is also on the shortlist as a reward for his spectacular breakthrough season, in which he has scored 19 goals in the Premier League - the same total as Costa and Manchester City's Sergio Ag¸ero.

Ag¸ero doesn't make the list, which is completed by Liverpool playmaker Philippe Coutinho, Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea and Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez.

The winner will be announced on April 26.
