Cheerleaders perform during the 1st cricket semi-final match between England and New Zealand Women's World T20 in Colombo on October 3, 2012. Sri Lankan cricket authorities have complained to organisers about cheerleaders at the Twenty20 tournament after media criticism describing them as a "disgraceful eyesore". Nishantha Ranatunga, secretary of Sri Lanka Cricket, told AFP that fans had provided "negative feedback" after lacklustre displays by the local performers, who lead celebrations when wickets are taken and boundaries scored.
