Letter:

Samantha Algama and Gwen Herat

The 'Daily News' has been able to rise above the Interim Committee and boldly without any fear to expose the injustice of the Interim Committee in sacking such an excellent media man as Samantha Algama without even batting an eye lid.

Your Sports page had highlighted the injustice meted to Algama by the Interim Committee of Sri Lanka Cricket as though it was their personal property. Having said thus, your 'comment' also highlighted the contribution Gwen Herat made to bring women's cricket to what it is today as they are playing the Asia Cup in Sri Lanka.

From scratch, Ms. Herat, pushed it to international level and she is highly respected even at ICC for the role she played. I have kept a tab on the development of women's cricket and we hope that this game will not meet the same fate of men's cricket. It was clean administration.

Your tribute to her was magnanimous. You have placed your finger on two highly respected individuals with unblemished reputation which is very important for the progress of the game.

We are indebted to the Sports Minister for calling for a report on Algama's dismissal and in the same breath I can tell the Minister that Ms. Herat will be a terrific President to serve on the Interim Committee judging by her administrative skills that saw women's cricket into ICC and the discipline with which she did.

Mohammed L Hafeel, Wattala
