“Violation of cricket ethics begins from the top management” – Arjuna Ranatunga

Former Test Cricket Captain Arjuna Ranatunga stated that responsibility of violation of cricket ethics and spirits of the cricket do not only rely on cricketers. He further mentioned that Sri Lanka cricket board has create an expeditious method of violation of cricket ethics. He made this remarks during a sports programme organized by ‘Save the Sports’ at Mirigama.

“Violation of cricket ethics begins from the Top management. Even Match fixing has started from top to bottom. School children do not learn subjects, but thefts. It operates from Cricket. Our cricket has degraded because of the group of thieves in the cricket management. In T20, our ranking is lower than Afganisthan. I never aware of a period of degradation of cricket like now. I don’t remember whether we were in lowest rank in 1982. Gamblers are ruining cricket. Ex- minister of Sports and the current government should take the responsibility to this. As the Yahapalanaya government, if we have done the right thing, this situation wouldn’t have prevail. It’s good sign that current Minister of Sports is looking into upgrade cricket. The best way to upgrade cricket is to appoint an Interim committee” Minister Ranatunga added further.
