The Sri Lankan government has formally apologized to Asian Cricket Council (ACC) President and Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) Secretary Jay Shah over former captain Arjuna Ranatunga’s ridiculous remarks. It is noteworthy that former Sri Lankan captain Arjun Ranatunga had given a strange statement and held Jay Shah responsible for Sri Lanka’s defeat.
What did Ranatunga say?
Former Sri Lankan team captain Arjuna Ranatunga said that SLC is suffering losses due to the relationship between Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) officials and Jay Shah. BCCI thinks they can crush and control SLC. Jay Shah is running Sri Lankan cricket. SLC is getting ruined due to pressure from Jai Shah. An Indian man is ruining Sri Lankan cricket. He is powerful only because of his father, who is the Home Minister of India.
Sri Lankan government expressed regret
Two Sri Lankan government ministers, Harin Fernando and Kanchana Wijesekera, expressed regret over Ranatunga’s statement during the parliamentary session on Friday. He clarified that the responsibility lies with Sri Lankan administrators rather than external bodies. Minister Wijesekera said that as a government we express our regret to Asian Cricket Council President Jay Shah. We cannot point fingers at the President of the Asian Cricket Council or other countries for the shortcomings of our institutions, this is a misconception.
amidst all this
Tourism Minister Harin Fernando said President Ranil Wickremesinghe has spoken to Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) secretary Jay Shah to lift the ban imposed on Sri Lankan cricket by the ICC. Minister Harin Fernando warned that the ICC ban could have adverse consequences for the country. This will especially impact the Under-19 Cricket World Cup to be held in January next year. He said that if the ICC ban is not lifted then no one will go to Sri Lanka for the tournament. Sri Lanka will not get a single penny from the cricket tournament.
