Arjuna slams cricket administration

05_ARJUNA_RANATUNGA_175457fWorld Cup winning captain Arjuna Ranatunga slammed the local cricket administration for the “sorry state of the game” in the country.

“The game has gone under bookies and other questionable characters,” Ranatunga said.

“I am hoping to meet the President and the Prime Minister soon to brief them”, Ranatunga who is also the current Ports and Shipping Minister told reporters.

He was critical of the action to replace the selection committee after the original committee had picked the World T20 squad.

He appeared to target the current Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) Chairman Thilanga Sumathipala, also the current Deputy Speaker of Parliament.

Ranatunga was among the candidates whom Sumathipala defeated at the SLC election held in January.
