Reports had emerged earlier that many of the women cricketers complained about selectors asking them for sexual favors in return for a place in the team.
A three-member committee, headed by retired Supreme Court judge Nimal Dissanayake, submitted its findings in a report to the sport's ministry on Wednesday.
"The committee report found evidence of sexual harassment by members of the Sri Lanka cricket women's management team against several members of the Sri Lanka cricket women's team," the sports ministry said in a statement.
"The (sports) minister intends to take disciplinary actions against those members where evidence has been found, the Sports Ministry will also forward the recommendations of the said committee to the interim committee of the Sri Lanka Cricket Board with strict instructions to follow the recommendations of the said Committee,” read the statement.
No details about the evidence were given to the media, no names were released, it is yet to be seen what action the ministry and the board will take against the guilty officials.
A senior female cricketer had leaked the reports of sexual exploitation by senior officials in the women's cricket administration in October last year.
