Website Editor Hits Apsari For A Six – Exposes Her As Inside Informant

Apsari Singhabahu Tillakaratne the current Convener of Women’s Cricket at Sri Lanka Cricket has been exposed as the mole who leaks inside information to the media.

Apsari

The editor of social media website Cricket Age Pushpendra Albe in a Facebook altercation with Apsari’s son Ravindu Tillakaratne wrote “I still respect ur mother, as she supported me, called me dozens of times and gave insides, so don’t ruin it”.

Despite operating out of India, Cricket Age also recently published a series of articles leading up to the recent suspension of SLC’s Assistant Secretary Ravin Wickramaratne. Wickramaratne was named as the chief architect who was responsible in fixing the outcome of a domestic cricket match played earlier between Panadura Sports Club and Kalutara Physical Culture Club.

A Sri Lanka Cricket Board official speaking to Colombo Telegraph on condition of anonymity said “It was unbelievable. someone was leaking information to Cricket Age like a running commentary whilst the inquiry was going on. Chairman SLC Thilanga Summathipala was furious and wanted to find out who the mole within us was. Finally the mole is being exposed”.

Meanwhile despite being staunch supporters of former President Mahinda Rajapaksa, both Apsari Tillakaratne and her husband Hashan Tillakaratne were given prominent posts by the current Chairman SLC and President Maithripala Sirisena’s yahapalanaya supporter Thilanga Sumathipala.

The former national skipper Hashan Thilakaratne who was axed earlier as a national cricket selector was later reinstated as the national side’s batting coach and now is the current coach of the Sri Lanka under 19 team.

With politics reigning supreme especially after Sri Lanka won the ICC’s World Cup in 1996, the day to day running affairs of SLC has been marred with much political interferences.

Hashan Tillakaratne a politician himself who once contested government elections on the United National Party ticket crossed over to the Mahinda Rajapaksa camp barely weeks before the 2015 Presidential Elections.

Currenty he too is embroiled in much controversy for favouring his Joint Opposition and political party buddy and former Minister Keheliya Rambukwella’s son Ramith, in the ongoing Provincial one day games to select the national side for South Africa’s tour to Sri Lanka.

As the appointed coach of the Provincial side Galle, Hashan has now continued to play Ramith Rambukwella in four straight trial games out of six in an uncustomary role as an opener. This is despite Ramith Rambukwella failing in three attempts and scoring a fifty against a weak bowling opposition in one game. Hashan has sidelined other prominent cricketers such as Sri Lanka player and Colts regular opener Sadeera Samarawickrama, Lahiru Milantha, Madawa Warnapura and two time winner of the School Boy Cricketer of the Year award Bhanuka Rajapaksa. This ongoing tournament was originally planned to give players on the cusp much exposure for selection. (By Jacqueline Senanayake)

    Nobody likes moles, but with dirt scattered everywhere, I think that this Apsari should not be blamed too much. She mustn’t be excused only because of her pretty face, but also because the people whom she’s exposed are all so ugly, INSIDE and out.
    .
    In other words, the attitude that I have to her is similar to how I’ve now begun to feel about Maithripala Sirisena.

    It’s ok if South Africans are coming here and our team hasn’t to fly anywhere because Ramith Rambukwella, South Africa and aeroplanes dont combine well. For the duration of the tournament keep the bars around ten miles of the venues closed.

    Doesnt CT have moles who leak information to them? How is this a problem to CT when CT is engaged in the same business? The problem CT has with this woman, Apsari is she is a big supporter of Mahinda Rajapaksa. Ryt?

    even schoolboy cricketers are told that they should manage their evenings by going to bed early and avoiding smoking and drinking to maintain their fitness.Ramith is a person who does not reflect discipline.
    Pl get some sri lanka army physical trainers to get this guy(and Others like him) to throw up the cig butts and the alchohol in double quick time.If not this habit will spread.I heard from an hotel employee that many of our current players hit the bottle hard(Carters drink).Discipline and fitness is a must.(pl.do not tell papa about these as he might jump off his hotel room)

        Why the snide comment” is the statement related to your immediate female family member’s personal and first hand and vast experience of been well known for “been able to blow more than a whistle” around your home patch.

        If that the case I wouldn’t be so cocky giving the game away. !!! He heh

    Lankan Cricket was a brand on par with Ceylon Tea. The corruption/nepotism/double-cross bane has found its way here. Player morale is at an all-time low.
    In this report we see politics in every nook and corner of SLC. The losers are the players and cricket lovers.
