Indian White-Ball Team Currently Touring Sri Lanka Is A Strong Squad: Sri Lanka Cricket
Earlier, Arjuna Ranatunga lashed out at the Sri Lanka Cricket Board for agreeing to play against a second-string Indian team.
“This is a second-string Indian team and their coming here is an insult to our cricket. I blame the current administration for agreeing to play with them due to television marketing needs. India sent their best team to England and sent a weaker side to play here. I blame our board for that,” said Ranatunga.
The Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) board has responded to Arjuna Ranatunga’s criticism.

Out of the 20-member India squad, 14 players have represented India across all formats or in some form. (Test, ODI, or T20I), and not a ‘second-string team,’ as claimed,” SLC said in a statement.
