SL plays down Shehzad-Dilshan incident
Tillakaratne Dilshan and Sri Lanka Cricket are unconcerned about religion-focused comments Ahmed Shehzad had supposedly made to Dilshan following the third ODI, although the PCB has issued Shehzad an official reprimand.
Footage of the teams exiting the field after Sri Lanka's series win supposedly shows Shehzad talking to Dilshan on a matter of religion.
Dilshan's reply is inaudible, but Shehzad again allegedly delivers another similar comment before the two part ways and head toward their dressing rooms.
Dilshan said he thought little of the exchange at the time, and will not consider lodging a complaint.
He said he doesn’t remember even what he said to Shehzad. He added that he has no issues at all, and that he was just quite happy with the win at the time.
SLC is similarly unfazed, team manager Michael de Zoysa said, and will consider the matter closed.
