Colombo: Sri Lanka's crisis-ridden cricket Board won a respite on Friday when a court lifted a suspension on using its bank accounts. The Colombo Commercial High Court ruled that an interim panel in charge of the Board of Control for Cricket in Sri Lanka (BCCSL) was allowed to operate the organisation's bank accounts.The panel was appointed by Sports Minister Lakshman Kiriella in March after he dismissed the elected board.Ten days ago the court had ordered the bank accounts be frozen, after members of the sacked Board filed four cases against the interim panel and argued that it should not be able to use the bank accounts.The cases are pending and due to be heard in two weeks.The lifting of the freeze on the bank accounts will allow the interim panel to pay salaries of the BCCSL staff and meet other day-to-day expenses. Kiriella sacked the original Board because he said it had failed to provide its accounts one month ahead of its annual meeting.
