Sri Lankan Sports Minister Dayasiri Jayasekera is now willing to investigate on the 2011 World Cup Final between Sri Lanka and India. The concerns are said to be raised by the former Sri Lankan captain Arjuna Ranatunga. The sports minister said the journalists, “Let anyone make a written complaint. I am ready to order an investigation”, in an interview in Colombo.
The words came soon after Ranatunga made some comments on that match that took place at the Wankhede Stadium. In spite of the outstanding performance of the players, how the incident took place needs to be investigated, addressed the former Sri Lankan Captain. Sri Lanka was defeated to India after scoring 274.
According to a regional television channel, the manager’s report has said something strange, it has claimed nearly over 50 cigarettes were being smoked in the dressing room that day and a senior Sri Lankan player is accused against the happening. Moreover, the captain also had resigned instantly without any prior reason. Indicating these two whimsical cases, he assumes there was something that needs to be investigated properly. He raised his voice to the cricket management at that time but that did not prove to be effective in reality.
The hullaballoo regarding the 2011 match arouse after the first ever series loss in the one-day internationals to Zimbabwe. Kumar Sangakkara, Captain of Sri Lankan Cricket team at the time of the Final, has demanded an investigation on the 2009 Pakistan tour, where several gunmen attacked players and injured them. The incident made all the international teams to decide of no further tour to Pakistan. At that time, Arjuna Ranatunga was the local Cricket Boss.
