The International Cricket Council (ICC) lifted the suspension of Sri Lanka Cricket with immediate effect, saying that the country's cricket body was no longer in breach of the global body's "membership obligations". The decision comes after Sri Lanka lost the hosting rights of the ongoing U19 Men's World Cup, which was moved to South Africa after the ICC suspended the country's membership due to government interference.
