Ranatunga gets his way Nishantha appointed as team manager

More confusion! Reuters reports Nishantha Ranatunga, brother of Sri Lanka Cricket chairman Arjuna Ranatunga, has been appointed the new manager of the Sri Lanka team.

Gamini Lokuge who initially rejected the squad stating there was no mention of a team manager on the selection sheet was quoted by local press as stating that he would not allow the brother of Arjuna Ranatunga to fly to Canada as manager.

The recent appointment of Nishantha as team manager drew criticism from various quarters citing favoritism from Arjuna.
