Arjuna Ranatunga Urges ICC To Probe Sri Lanka Cricket Chief

Former skipper Arjuna Ranatunga has blamed Sri Lanka's string of humiliating defeats on the country's cricket chief and demanded his investigation by the International Cricket Council. In what could be the opening shots of a new bid to head Sri Lanka Cricket, Ranatunga, 53, said there was no "proper discipline" in the national team which has had a horror run of results.

Ranatunga accused Sri Lanka Cricket president Thilanga Sumathipala, 52, of being involved in gaming -- a claim Sumathipala denies -- and said he should not be allowed to hold office.

"There is no proper discipline in the team... (but) no point in blaming the cricketers when they get involved in all these gambling things. First they have to get the officials in order," said Ranatunga. "I want to know if the ICC has a backbone to check if these people (Sri Lanka Cricket management) are in compliance with ethics standards."
