World Cup winning captain Arjuna Ranatunga says both England and New Zealand should have been named joint champions of the 2019 World Cup, claiming that would have been the just thing to do.

Minister Ranatunga speaking to media in Mirigama said the 2019 World Cup final is the best he has witnessed in World Cup history.

The Minister was of the opinion that Sri Lanka could have reached the semi-finals in the least, if an experienced unit was named for the World Cup.

He however noted that the Sri Lanka team performed better than most expected, but reiterated that if an experienced team was chosen, Sri Lanka could have made it to the Semi-Finals.

The Minister also acknowledged that players improved by each game, especially the newcomers.
