Minister has taken a wise decision for betterment of Sri Lankan cricket Arjuna Ranatunge has no managerial abilities, so arrogant and full of ego about 1996 world cup win. The world cup win was not only his effort it’s a team effort, he happened to be the captain at that time. Players such as Aravinda, Sanath and Romesh Kalu should be praised for that. Hope Sri Lankan cricket will get better without this monster.

Both the Minister and Arjuna are dumb asses. So I am a little confused.
