New Delhi. Now the former Sri Lankan captain has vented his anger on the decision to keep a reserve day for the Asia Cup Super-4 match between India and Pakistan. Criticizing former Sri Lankan captain Arjuna Ranatunga on Friday, he said that changing the rules keeping one or two teams in mind would put cricket in danger.
There was no reserve day for any match in the Asia Cup, but the provision of reserve day was added for the Super-4 stage match between India and Pakistan played in Colombo. The result of this match was also declared on the reserve day. Ranatunga said that the decision to keep the reserve day for just one match disappointed many people. ICC just talks nonsense, nothing is in its control.
‘The game will be in danger’
Ranatunga further said, you take the Asia Cup. You have rules before the tournament, but before that one match, they changed the rules. Where is ACC? Where is ICC? Changing the rules of a tournament to suit one or two teams would put the game in danger. He criticized the ICC and ACC for maintaining silence on the issue.
People are just hungry for position
The World Cup-winning captain said, I am not very comfortable when you have a tournament where you change the rules for a team. This will cause a lot of loss in future. I feel very sad for the ICC and ACC because they just want to stay in office. Former cricketers also avoid saying anything on this issue because it will affect their earnings.
‘Rules can change in World Cup also’
He would not be surprised if India’s World Cup match against Pakistan in Ahmedabad gets a reserve day. He said, I would not be surprised if they change the rules before the India-Pakistan match (in the World Cup). The ICC will keep its mouth shut and say ‘ok, do this’.
