Minister Arjuna Ranatunga says Minister of Sports Harin Fernando should intervene in efforts to withdraw the sanctions imposed against former Cricketer Sanath Jayasuriya by the International Cricket Council.
Speaking during an event in Kadawatha Minister Ranatunga said the ICC cannot issue a two year suspension on Jayasuriya on charges of failing to provide his mobile phones for ongoing investigations.
The Minister meanwhile accused the present Sri Lanka Cricket administration of failing to intervene and stand against the two year suspension imposed on Sanath Jayasuriya adding he was a cricketer who brought glory to the country.
Minister Ranatunga stressed the Sports Minister should inquire into allegations of match fixing to find root causes.
The Minister claimed the Sports Minister is responsible of resolving the issues surrounding the two year suspension imposed on Sanath Jayasuriya.
