The newly elected Sri Lanka Cricket President Thilanga Sumathipala said today he would take legal action against former SLC President Arjuna Ranatunga over certain statements Ranatunga had allegedly made.
“I am going to deal with Arjuna Ranatunga from now onwards. I will take the responsibility of all things he did as the President of SLC.”
“He should accept his defeat, and confine himself to raising faults on umpiring,” Sumathipala said.
“I know everything about his past. Whom does he think he is to insult others? Hence, I will take legal action against him,” he said.
However, Minister of Sports Dayasiri Jayasekera who also attended the media briefing said, all factions should unite for the best interest of the national cricket team, and he would never let anyone to act on their own whims and fancy.
