In a further twist to the on-going saga between cricket legend Muralitharan and cricket bellend Thilanga Sumathipala, the latter who serves as President of Sri Lanka Cricket accused the former player of providing consultancy services to the Meteorological Department after rain halted play on day one of the first test against Australia.
Sri Lanka were bundled out quicker than the time it takes to eat a meal at the Great Wall Chinese Restaurant earlier today and looked down and out. However, “the boys” managed remove Australia’s top order very cheaply with two quick wickets and, despite the opposition having settled in, Mr. Sumathipala believed that the Lankans could have finished off the game today if not for the rain.
Speaking to the media after proceedings were called off, Mr. Sumathipala said, “We now suspect that in addition to consulting for Australia he was also providing advice to the Meteorological Department on how to divert rain from offshore areas to Kandy. The showers that ensued halted the match at a crucial stage and there is no doubt that not only could we have got the Aussie’s out, bet we could have enforced a follow-on and scuttled through them for second time and clinch victory.”
“We are very disappointed that he could not consult for the sunny side of things and help Sri Lanka. He is not just a traitor but also a rainmaker,” he added.
