The International Cricket Council (ICC) has become a personal property of India, charged MP Wimal Weerawansa in parliament yesterday (07).
He said that cricket being a gentleman’s game, the host country should not make it an opportunity to display its might.
Weerawansa claimed the World Cup final is planned to be played on Indian premier Narendra Modi’s birthday at his birthplace.
Referring to Sri Lanka’s game with India, he said coach Mahela Jayawardena had advised Sri Lanka’s captain to field first irrespective of the outcome of the toss.
Even India was surprised when they were asked to bat first, the MP said, and said there existed behind-the-scene stories.
