Former skipper Arjuna Ranatunga blamed Sri Lanka’s cricket board for the squad’s crushing three-Test series whitewash on home soil against India.
Ranatunga said Sri Lanka’s XI could not be faulted for the humiliating 3-0 drubbing described by skipper Dinesh Chandimal as the worst series of his career, but squared the blame entirely with management.
“Sri Lanka cricket is going through the worst period,” Ranatunga told. “You can’t blame only the players, they are demoralised. It is the fault of the management.”
Ranatunga renewed calls for Sri Lanka Cricket chief Thilanga Sumathipala to be sacked, and urged the International Cricket Council to investigate management at the board.
