Sri Lanka Cricket (or SLC), formerly the Board for Cricket Control in Sri Lanka (BCCSL), is the controlling body for cricket in Sri Lanka. It operates the Sri Lankan cricket team and first-class cricket within Sri Lanka.

Sri Lanka's cricket board has been run by government appointed interim committees, which has come into severe criticism from past players as well as journalist.[2]

After co-hosting the ICC Cricket World Cup 2011, Sri Lanka Cricket was financially crippled thanks to financial mismanagement by the government-appointed interim committee.[3]

Domestic competitions

Sri Lanka Cricket oversees the progress and handling of the major domestic competitions: the First-class tournament Premier Trophy, the List A tournament Premier Limited Overs Tournament and the Twenty20 competition Twenty20 Tournament.

They also organize and host the Inter-Provincial Cricket Tournament, a competition where the above first-class do not take part but rather teams represent four different provinces of Sri Lanka.
