New Delhi: In the first ODI against Sri Lanka, Team India registered a thumping victory by 7 wickets. Along with this, Arjuna Ranatunga has also got a befitting reply who insulted the young Indian team.
There was a ruckus over Ranatunga’s statement
Former Sri Lanka captain Arjuna Ranatunga said in June 2021 that the Indian team in Sri Lanka is not the best. This is a second level team. Did our sports minister or cricket administrators not know this?
venom spilled in front of media
Arjuna Ranatunga had told the Sri Lankan media, Sri Lanka Cricket may have gone down, but as a cricket nation, we have an identity, we have dignity, we have to play the Indian B team. You should not give your best.
Fans trolled Ranatunga
Arjuna Ranatunga is on the target of Indian cricket fans after the victory of Team India under the captaincy of Shikhar Dhawan. Many said that India’s so-called B team is heavier than Sri Lanka’s main team. Let’s have a look at some such funny comments.

If this is the condition of Sri Lankan cricket, then next time we will have to send our C team.
