Sri Lanka's new selection panel has said its selections would remain transparent throughout its tenure, at a meeting with players, coaches and officials, held at Sri Lanka Cricket headquarters on Wednesday.

The panel also committed its two full-time selectors, Hashan Tillakaratne and Pramodya Wickramasinghe, to be present at every international match and team training session. In addition, the selectors outlined their expectations of the players - particularly the national team, emphasising fitness in particular, both as a way to enhance performance and remain injury free.

SLC's match referees were also asked to play a part in feeding information about domestic players to the panel. "The selectors told the match referees that they see all matches, and are in the best position to identify talent," an SLC release said. "They were requested to give them information on noteworthy players."

The selectors' meeting with the players came after a week of discussions held with domestic cricket coaches, clubs and match officials, whose views had not been canvassed systematically by previous panels.

Whoever who is paid by the cricket board be it selectors,players,coaches and officials should be held responsible,compliant and accountable to deliver ensuring complete transparency.Times have changed and people must take accountability for their actions otherwise they should honourably get out before been kicked out.Hopefully, Sri Lanka Cricket can restore its' image of been clean in whatever they do unlike the recent past where so much has been said and heard of the irregularities which have taken place on and off the field.

Well I hope all words are matched with actions. Remember actions speak louder than words.
