Arjun Ranatunga and Aakash Chopra
- India and Sri Lanka will be face to face soon
- Both the teams will play a limited overs series.
- Dhawan is in command of India on tour
India and Sri Lanka will meet in a limited overs series from July 13. Both the teams will play first three ODIs and then three T20 matches. The BCCI has sent a less experienced team led by Shikhar Dhawan to Sri Lanka, in which six players have not even played an international match. Let us tell you that another England of India is on the round. Under the captaincy of Kohli, this team went to play the final of the Test Championship in England and will now play the Test series from 4 August.
Recently, Sri Lanka’s former World Cup winning captain Arjuna Ranatunga described Team India as a ‘second-class team’ in Sri Lanka. He also criticized the Sri Lanka board for playing a series with a second-rate Indian team. Ranatunga had said, ‘This is a second-class Indian team and their coming here is an insult to our cricket. I blame the current administration for agreeing to play with them to meet the needs of television marketing.’
Akash reminded the poor condition of Sri Lankan team
Former Indian cricketer and famous commentator Akash Chopra gave a befitting reply to Arjuna Ranatunga’s comment. Akash rubbished Ranatunga’s claims and reminded him of the poor condition of the Sri Lankan team. Said on his YouTube channel, ‘It is absolutely correct that this is not the main team, because it does not have players like Bumrah, Shami, Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma and Ravindra Jadeja. But is it really like a B-grade team? No. It’s not like that.’
He further said that the Sri Lankan team will have to look inside itself. To be honest, Afghanistan doesn’t have to play the World T20 Qualifiers, but Sri Lanka will have to. this is reality. The truth is that Sri Lankan cricket is really struggling right now. Even if you just look at the numbers in England. Chances are they could not qualify for the T20 World Cup. Do you know if you could not reach in Super 12? This is the reality while Afghanistan is already there.
Sri Lanka’s team at the bottom of the ICC rankings
At the same time, when it comes to the ranking of the Sri Lankan team in all formats, it is at the bottom position. Sri Lanka is ranked eighth in the ICC Test rankings while the team is ranked ninth in ODIs and T20Is respectively. It is known that ever since many Sri Lankan legends have called the game goodbye, since then the team has been going downhill continuously.
