India Tour Has Hurt Our World Cup Preparation : Former Sri Lanka Captain,Ranatunga

After West Indies cricketers didn’t complete their full tour in India due to some pay dispute with their own board,a Sri Lanka tour was hurriedly arranged.And you all know that Sri Lanka is already down to 0-4 in the ongoing 5 matches ODI series.And now former Sri Lanka captain Arjuna Ranatunga has dropped the last bomb on the officials of Sri Lanka Cricket Board.

He said,”In trying to please India they have taken Sri Lanka Cricket into a depressing situation.Jayasuriya (Chairman of selectors,Sri Lanka Cricket Board) and Atapattu (coach,Sri Lanka National Cricket team) made us believe that the Indian tour would come in good stead for our World Cup preparations.This has been proved false now. We were aware that the Sri Lanka team was attending a fitness programme when the decision was made to go on the Indian tour. These are the results of poor planning.”

But it was his brother,Nishantha Ranatunga,the SLC Secretary,who agreed to the tour after the unfinished West Indies tour.url
