Sri Lanka’s players have agreed to tour England later this month even though a contract dispute with their cricket board remains unresolved.

The players, including Test captain Dimuth Karunaratne and ODI skipper Kusal Perera, had refused to sign new contracts which offer lower base salaries and more performance-based incentives.

Some of the players felt the contracts were “non transparent” with the players expressing “shock and dismay” that the salaries offered to them were roughly one-third of those offered to their counterparts in other nations.
