Sri Lanka’s world cup winning captain, Arjuna Ranatunga is furious with the public statements of the Sri Lankan cricket’s officials. After a successful two-week tour of the Sri Lankan Cricket Team, the officials made unpleasant statements about the tour which displeased Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB).
"I am sure the public statements by our officials must be upsetting Pakistan. They are doing their best to bring cricket back into the country and statements like these doesn’t help their cause. As a former captain, I must congratulate PCB for the excellent show they put up during our recent visit," Ranatunga said when contacted by the local news outlet.
"We see Pakistan suffering the same fate and we all must try and help them out. It’s a shame that SLC is not doing enough to help PCB. People running the game at present perhaps do not know how much Pakistan helped us during our early days." Ranatunga further added.
Pakistan intends to host Sri Lanka for the Test series in December but the Sri Lankan Cricket Board has demanded the tour to be scheduled in U.A.E. Countering with the situation, PCB has requested SLC Board to lend 250,000 US Dollars per day to conduct the series at the neutral venue.
