Arjuna Ranatunga urges Sri Lankan players to leave IPL for a week and join protests
Ranatunga expressed disappointment about Sri Lankan players continuing to represent their IPL franchise even as the island nation is going through a severe economic crisis.
Protests have erupted across various parts of Sri Lanka against the government as the economy is on a free fall since the Covid-19 pandemic.
Amid low forex reserves and rising inflation, the country is experiencing a severe shortage of rations, fuel and essential items, including medical supplies.
I am sure you all know who are the players, playing in the IPL.
I don't want to mention but I would want them to leave their job for a week and come in support of the protests," Ranatunga was quoted
