Previous Sri Lanka captain Arjuna Ranatunga has pummeled Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) for disregarding neighborhood gifts while employing “trash” unfamiliar mentors. Ranatunga’s remarks went ahead the 25th commemoration of Sri Lanka’s World Cup win. In 1996, he drove Sri Lanka to their first and till date just title in the 50-over World Cup.
Under Ranatunga’s captaincy, Sri Lanka whipped Australia in the last as they completed the opposition without losing any game. From that point forward, their best outcomes have been the other participants completes in 2007 and 2011. As of late, the Islanders have attempted to do well in the World Cup as well as in different competitions and arrangement. In the last release of the competition, they couldn’t make it out of the gathering stages.
“We spend tremendous adds up to import trash mentors. There is acceptable (instructing) ability in the country, yet they are traveling to another country on the grounds that there is no acknowledgment for them at home,” said Arjuna Ranatunga while denoting the silver celebration of the 1996 triumph at a public function facilitated by Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa.
Sri Lanka depending on unfamiliar mentors: Arjuna Ranatunga
Arjuna Ranatunga Ranatunga further featured the names of some unbelievable cricketers from the country who have not been employed by SLC. He said previous public players, for example, his 1996 bad habit commander Aravinda de Silva, just as Mahela Jayawardene and Marvan Atapattu, were among the best batting mentors on the planet.
By chance, Sri Lanka were trained by an unfamiliar mentor (Dav Whatmore) when they won the 1996 World Cup. From that point forward, the Islanders have depended a great deal on the unfamiliar mentors to complete things. As of now, South African Mickey Arthur is the lead trainer of the group. A month ago, SLC had recruited Australia’s Tom Moody as an advisor.

Arjuna Ranatunga trained Sri Lanka from 2005 to 2007. Other unfamiliar mentors who have carried out their specialty for Sri Lanka incorporate Bruce Yardley, John Dyson, Paul Farbrace, Graham Ford and Geoff Marsh. From 2018 to 2019, SLC had employed previous Sri Lanka cricketer Chandika Hathurusingha as the mentor yet the move didn’t pay off. He was sacked by SLC after Sri Lanka’s lackluster showing in the 2019 World Cup.
