Ranatunga urges ICC to probe SLC pres­i­dent

Muscat Daily - - PRESS RELEASES -

Colombo, Sri Lanka - Former skip­per Ar­juna Ranatunga has blamed Sri Lanka's string of hu­mil­i­at­ing de­feats on the coun­try's cricket chief and de­manded his in­ves­ti­ga­tion by the In­ter­na­tional Cricket Coun­cil (ICC).

Ranatunga, 53, said there was no "proper dis­ci­pline" in the na­tional team which has had a hor­ror run of re­sults re­cently.

Ranatunga ac­cused Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) pres­i­dent Thi­langa Su­math­ipala, 52, of be­ing in­volved in gam­bling - a claim Su­math­ipala de­nies - and said he should not be al­lowed to hold of­fice.

"I want to know if the ICC has a back­bone to check if th­ese peo­ple (Sri Lanka Cricket man­age­ment) are in com­pli­ance with ethics stan­dards," said Ranatunga.
