Former Indian greats grill BCCI and Indian team players attitude
Former Indian Test captain and commentator Sunil Gavaskar, along with spinner Harbhajan Singh, have also criticized the Asian Cricket Council (ACC) for moving the remaining matches to Colombo despite the rain. Former Indian captain Sunil Gavaskar stated that it appears that the Indian team's players initially refused to go to Hambantota, but it's essential for us to know why the remaining tournament matches were not shifted to Hambantota, despite the prediction of rain in Colombo.
Sunil Gavaskar further added that our players need to understand that they have prepared for an entire month. If they don't get better facilities for one or two days, it won't make a significant difference. What's the harm in training for two days with fewer resources?
On the other hand, Harbhajan Singh mentioned that using the lack of training facilities in Hambantota as an excuse to move matches is unreasonable. In our time, players weren't even asked for their opinions on venue selection; it was solely the officials' decision.
Harbhajan Singh further commented that it now seems that Colombo will only host swimming contests between teams, as Dambulla is a complete international stadium, and it's unclear why matches aren't being played there
