Sajith Lashes Out At Mahindananda For Slinging Mud At Cricketers: "The Government Has Failed Miserably And Is Now Trying To Divert Public Attention"

Former Opposition Leader and Samagi Jana Balawegaya candidate Sajith Premadasa lashed out at former Sports Minister Mahindananda Aluthgamage for tarnishing the reputation of legendary cricketers.

Premadasa was responding to the former Sports Minister's claim that the final match of the ICC World Cup 2011 was fixed and sold to India.

"Why did the former Sports Minister wait for 09 years to come up with these allegations? Why didn't he report this to the ICC," Premadasa questioned.

He also added that the objective of the former Minister's claim was to destroy the characters of former cricketers including Kumar Sangakkara, Mahela Jayawardena, Muttiah Muralitharan, and T.M. Dilshan.

"The government has failed miserably in providing relief to the people affected by the Corona pandemic. They are now trying to divert the public attention by slinging mud at cricketers," he added.
