Default interesting development in sri lankaa

as reported on wisden:

Arjuna Ranatunga has won support from the Supreme Court in Colombo in his attempt to enter the politics of sport. Ranatunga, who aspired to head Sri Lanka’s cricket board, had appealed against a proposed sports law that would decree that politicians cannot hold office in sports bodies. He termed it a “violation of his fundamental rights”, and the court agreed. (Jan 10)
