Sri Lanka's sports ministry said on Friday it had dissolved the current administration of the national cricket board which has been tainted by allegations of financial mismanagement.
No specific reason was given for the move which was immediately followed by the appointment of a new Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) interim committee.
"The committee was automatically dissolved when the new one was appointed," sports ministry spokesman Harsha Abeykoon said.
The SLC has been run by successive interim committees -- appointed by the ministry -- for the last seven years.
On Thursday, the ministry said it would abide by a new International Cricket Council (ICC) directive, requiring all national boards to be elected without political interference.
