"Mathivanan has also being gagged from making statements to the Press which makes his case unprecedented wherein a secretary of an international organisation has been told to stay away from the media," the paper said.

The paper praised Mathivanan as "a genuine promoter of the game and players, and seeks nothing in return," and added that he was always ready to "clarify issues with the media and his ouster could only spell doom for the game’s administration in the country [Sri Lanka]."

Mathivanan is an old boy of Hartley College, Point Pedro, and rose to become a top-rate business person in Colombo, becoming the owner of East-West Marketing (Private) Limited, traders in consumer items.
