"I wish to apologize to for my tweet. It was just a joke n never intended to dishearten our brave cricketers. Go Lions!," De Silva tweeted last evening, apologising to the SLC and cricket fans.
De Silva, in a previous tweet said, ' Told Virat Kohli Cricket to go easy on # next test. 600 a bit too steep."
