Sri Lanka women's team manager ARM Aroos has resigned from all his posts connected to the women's game in the country, following the board's sanctioning of a formal inquiry against him because of a complaint made by captain Shashikala Siriwardene last week, accusing Aroos of extortion.

Retired senior superintendent of police, Hemachandra Dias, had conducted a preliminary inquiry into the matter, and recommended that the board conduct a formal inquiry into the allegations, at the SLC's executive committee meeting on Tuesday. The executive committee subsequently appointed a panel to carry out the inquiry, and following that Aroos submitted his resignation. Apart from being team manager, Aroos was also a national women's selector. He also stepped aside from his position as chairman of Sri Lanka's umpires committee, relinquishing that duty until the inquiry is complete.

The executive committee appointed Channa Weerakkody as team manager for the upcoming tour of Ireland, and named Srinath Silva the acting chairman of the umpires committee.
