Fans on social media were the first to notice the error and shared images of the cheque.

SLC has subsequently apologized for the mistake and has committed to implementing measures to prevent similar incidents in the future.

Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) wishes to inform the public that the prize money awarded to the winner of the concluded 1st test match between Sri Lanka and Pakistan amounted to US$ 5000.

However, SLC regrets the error that occurred in the ‘presentation cheque’ provided to the winning team.

Nonetheless, Sri Lanka Cricket, as the governing body of the game, takes full responsibility for the mistake and assures the cricket-loving public that measures will be taken in the future to prevent such errors.
