According to the ESPNcricinfo website, a payment of R16.46m was made directly into the players' bank accounts on December 16, instead of routing it through Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC).

The Sri Lankan players had not been paid since the conclusion of the World Cup in April and were owed a total of R35.38m (25% of the country's participation fee).

The money was paid directly into each player's account after the SLC told the ICC the exact amounts owed to each player and provided their respective bank account details.

Tony Irish, the chief executive of the South African Players Association, said that arrangement to pay the players was negotiated between the Federation of International Cricketers' Association (FICA) and the Sri Lankan Players Association (SLCA).

Sri Lanka Cricket ran into financial problems after running up debts of R267.5m to finance the building of two international stadiums in Hambantota and Pallekele, and to renovate the R Premadasa Stadium in Colombo, for the World Cup.
