Sri Lanka apologises for uniform fiasco

Cricket authorities in Sri Lanka have apologised to stadium workers who were forced to walk away in their underwear at the completion of a game against Zimbabwe when local organisers refused to pay them unless uniforms were returned.

Dozens of villagers recruited on a temporary basis to work at Mahinda Rajapaksa Stadium in Hambantota for Monday's limited-overs international between Sri Lanka and Zimbabwe were seen walking away in their underclothes.

"It is unbelievable that officials in certain levels could even think in this manner," Sri Lanka Cricket President Thilanga Sumathipala said.

"I apologise to the workers."
