Sri Lanka Cricket to leave out IPL contracted players

Sri Lanka's sports minister has ordered the interim governing body of Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) to leave out the IPL-contracted players while selecting a team for the England tour,May 2009.These cricketers are free to play in the IPL.
This marks the end of a totally unnecessary confusion brought on by arranging a hasty tour to England. It not only pitted the SLC against the BCCI, it also sought to unfairly use the  Sri Lankan cricketers as pawns in the power battle between ECB and the BCCI.

R,

Actually, the SLC has signaled a change in its attitude towards ECB. In essence they switched camps to BCCI.

Hmm... I didn't quite like this news... power broking ego pacifying battle indeed... but still, those contracted players should have opted to play for the country.
