NishanthaR 410px 13 11 5Nearly Rs 400,000 has been spent on an obituary notice published in newspapers on deceased Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) Executive Committee member Irwin Jayawardena, reports say.

SLC Marketing Manager Vajira Dassanayake and Secretary Nishantha Ranatunga have published said notice together.

It would have been better if the money was provided to the family to spend on funeral activities rather than spending that much on an obituary notice , said a relative of Irwin Jawaradena speaking to ' Sri Lanka Mirror'.

However, the particular action has gained the attention of the Executive Committee members.

KT Francis, who umpired in Sri Lanka's inaugural Test match against England in 1982,former Executive Committee member Mithra Siriwardena , Lawrence Amarasena, C.I Gunawardena , Channa Gunasekara and Vernon Prince have not being offered such privileges when they passed away, reports say.
