ISLAMABAD - Former Sri Lanka captain Arjuna Ranatunga has come out in Pakistan’s defence with regards to a future Test tour of the country by the Sri Lanka national side while slamming the statements uttered by Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) officials after the Islanders recently concluded limited-overs tour of Pakistan.
Ranatunga, Sri Lanka’s only World Cup winning captain, criticised the recent statements of the Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) officials and termed the remarks ‘upsetting’.
“I am sure that the public statements from the Sri Lanka officials must have deeply upset Pakistan. They are striving hard to bring international cricket back to their country. Such statements can never be beneficial,” Ranatunga said when contacted by The Island link .
The former captain congratulated Pakistan on the successful tour and advised the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) against taking the SLC statements at face value.
