Randiv's No – Ball Controversy With Sehwag

Sehwag went on to criticise Randiv’s actions in the post match press conference, and SLC secretary Nishantha Ranatunga called India manager Ranjib Biswal this morning to apologise. Sri Lanka Cricket and offspinner Suraj Randiv have both apologised to Virender Sehwag for denying him a one-day century. 

Ranatunga called Biswal personally early on Tuesday morning to express his personal and the SLC remorse and at the same time has ordered the Sri Lanka team manger, Anura Tennekoon, to probe the incident which has earned headlines in Indian as well as Sri Lankan media and sparked a strong debate over the fairness of the way the delivery was bowled.

After the game, Sehwag said Sri Lanka had used such tactics in the past, having left Sachin Tendulkar stranded at 96 with a similar strategy in a match in Cuttack.

“It was clear that the Lankan team did not want me to get to my 100,” Sehwag said.

Sangakkara did not say anything about who coaxed Randiv to bowl the no-ball but suggested his players should uphold the spirit of the game.”That (playing in the spirit of the game) is a grey area and it is not in black and white. It is for all the teams in the world. All the teams have experienced something or the other. Presenting yourself well on and off the field and making efforts to play fair are I think part of our job,” he said.”As professionals, however, we try to forget what had happened at the beginning or the end of a match and try to go ahead. So, we have to get the better of the situation and try to win every match we play. That is what we are going to do now,” he added.
