As a end result of the incumbent chairman of Sri Lanka Cricket taking revenge on cricketer Lasith Malinga the uncommon player, the us of a has lost a player of value; country minister Ranjan Ramanayaka stated the day gone by at a media briefing
held yesterday at Madiwela.
This is what he said: “I am no longer saying these matters with anger or vengeance. I too am a cricket fan. Cricketers, media human beings and the public are with me. My personality is to throw my voice about crooks … catching the crooks. Whether I fail in that project or not — history will decide. But there is admire by way of revealing about crooks and losing face and losing the hostilities with crooks extra than in sound asleep with crooks and attractive in fraudulent activities.
In this battle too I might also lose. I have now not been concerned in any fraud. Therefore I am taking this war rightalong. According to cricketing legal guidelines Mr. Thilanga Sumathipala has no proper to occupy the most important chair of Sri Lanka Cricket. Mr. Sumathipala is the proprietor of a media institution. Apart from that he even imports sports goods. Those involved in making a bet are in opposition to the law of sports. I do not understand what earnings minister Dayasiri draws … via putting him in that main chair.
We have been in quantity three in cricket. Now we are in number eight or nine. That passed off at the time minister Dayasiri and Mr. Thilanga Sumathipala was there. If there is any shame … would no longer contest again. If possessing a spinal column, a spine and modesty … may not contest this time. Investigations had been performed on Sri Lanka about corruption allegations, with the aid of the ICC. Even I used to be questioned. I additionally informed what I knew. Revenge was taken on Lasith Malinga. We all recognize it … why we tasted defeat all through the past. If the media do no longer talk about this … then there is something.
I will tell names of eleven media correspondents. How foreign trips had been made. How 7500 every was once taken for an article. There are four whose names have been taken and they are with us. What they said used to be ‘we’ll beg, do not mention our names!’ There are two categories referred to as minor frauds and large frauds. I am not going in the back of small frauds.
Today I sit down alone. In future I hope to sit together with outstanding players. What I ask this gentleman is to supply up. That is to keep cricket. It is sufficient inflicting this a great deal of ruin. Bid goodbye and supply it to a ideal person”.
