Minister of Sports Dayasiri Jayasekera summoned nine players who were heading to India to turn back as they were leaving the country without his approval. The players had even boarded the flight at the time Minister made his order.

 According to the country’s sports law a team could not leave the country without minister’s approval.

 “How can I approve a team at a short notice? According to the Sports Law, list has to send three weeks before leaving. But they are sending it, just three hours before leaving the country. So I had to recall them." Minister Dayasiri said.

Minister further stated even though they can go tonight, this should not happen again.
