Sri Lanka Cricket is in the middle of one of the lowest points with a corruption scandal that shakes the country. But it is getting worse.
The controversy seems controversial, with the Sri Lankan ODI side in disarray after ODI skipper Lasith Malinga’s wife crushed a bomb that ripped the team apart.
Malanya’s wife, Tanya, has allegedly asked the rounder Thisara Perera for help from the Sri Lankan sports minister to secure his place on the ODI side earlier this month.
Perera struck back, revealing his recent ODI record for Sri Lanka and beating Malinga’s wife for destroying the wardrobe in a letter to CEO of Sri Lanka Cricket Ashley de Silva.
“When this kind of accusation is made by the reigning captain’s wife on social media, it is difficult to prevent the general public from believing in me and slandering me in various ways,” an excerpt from Cricinfo by ESPN said.
“In the locker room, there has been general unease since [the Facebook post], and to be honest, the environment was rather unpleasant for the teenagers, especially if two older players were not on the same page.” We can not play as a team with friction.
“The role of the leadership is to build stability and unity within the team, even before you can start playing a fixture, and at the moment I have to say that we did not benefit from it.”
In 20 ODIs since the beginning of 2018, Perera scored 639 runs at an average of 42.60, including its first ODI century and three 50s. He also took 27 wickets at an average of 25. He called on the Sri Lankan Cricket Association body to intervene in May just months after the start of the World Cup.
“We are on the brink of the World Cup, and our focus and attention should be on delivering good service, rather than arguing about meaningless issues with social media – this team desperately needs strong leadership and leadership, and important is an environment of unity “These issues need to be corrected before the World Cup. The leadership and seniors of the team must set an example, “he wrote.
“We have become the laughing stock of a whole country, all because of a person’s personal vendetta, which is not so easy in a time like this, I humbly challenge the SLC to intervene and help us make our difference overcome and move forward with new confidence and sense of unity. “
Prior to the ODI series in January in New Zealand, Malinga was appointed skipper for Sri Lanka. He took over the Perera T20 government and the Dinesh Chandimal ODI team.
Sri Lanka lost all its White Ball games at the end of the New Zealand Tour. The Sri Lankan cricket legend was sick of the social media antics.
Sri Lanka is perhaps the only nation that can claim to have been 12 months more difficult than Australia.
The ICC confirmed this week that it had received new information in a corruption investigation in the country’s country, as there was a 15-day amnesty on the near-terminated.
Former captain and selector Sanath Jayasuriya was indicted by the ICC last October for refusing to cooperate with the sport’s anti-corruption unit. He has denied any wrongdoing. Former bowling coach Nuwan Zoysa was banned last year by Sri Lanka Cricket for allegations of match-fixing.
Sri Lanka’s tour was a hit before it even started when Angelo Mathews was injured with an Achilles tendon injury, while the fastest Lahiru Kumara and Dushmantha Chameera had to join at home after the Gabba injury.
Sri Lanka’s problematic Australia tour scored another goal as coach Chandika Hathurusingha was removed from the team’s selection list.
Hathurusingha is still on the road after a defeat in a home test series in England and a defeat in New Zealand on this trip. After losing by innings and 140 runs to Australia on the Gabba.
Sri Lanka Cricket confirmed the move in a statement before the Canberra Test, which starts on Friday.
“The team selection during the tour by the team will be made by a team manager and captain committee in consultation with the national selection committee,” the statement said.
“This decision was made at the direction of the Ministry of Sport to address the need to form an effective and transparent selection mechanism while the team is on tour.”
Sri Lanka bowling coach Rumesh Ratnayake tried to make a positive impact on the team’s final disaster. “It was a difficult tour for us, we knew it would be before we left,” he said. “The saying goes that when someone is down, he is strongest.”
