Twenty-Twenty responsible for India’s Defeat: Ranatunga

July 27, 2008

Former Captain and Chariman of Sri Lanka Cricket Board Arjuna Ranatunga has blamed 20-20 cricket for India’s massive defeat in first cricket test.

“The way that the Indians have played this Test is an eye-opener not just for us but for all cricket-playing countries. They dealt with this like a Twenty20 game. I think they were not prepared for Test cricket,” He also said

“If the Indians keep getting their priorities wrong, they will go down ranking-wise. Ultimately, it is the rank that is very important. And it is this performance that will determine the future of the game in your country. Focus on the Twenty20 game is a short-term thing. If the game is not protected, we are in for a major disaster”
