    Sri Lanka losing face

    Chris Broad: cleared of allegations that, it now turns out, were never even made© AFP

    Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) have denied reporting match referee Chris Broad to the ICC for "boozing" with Australia's players during the recent series. Mohan de Silva, the president of SLC, claims that he was misquoted by a reporter from the state-run Sunday Observer newspaper.

    In an open letter to the journalist, de Silva said: "I have noted that you by error have made a reference to me with regards to the claim that match referee Chris Broad was found boozing with the Australian players. I wish to state that at no time did I confirm this story and neither has Sri Lanka Cricket reported any incident involving Mr. Broad and Australian players to the ICC. As such it is clear that I have been misquoted in the said story."



    When this story first surfaced Sri Lanka did nothing to stop Broad from being slandered, now one week later after being asked to provide details they say they have been misquoted. Broad should have every right to seek redress from the Sri Lankan board. Nothing but and open full public apology to Broad from the Sri Lankan board followed by a request to remove thier own request to stop Broad for refereeing any SL series. Sri Lanka need to get this right now especially now they have also been identified as supplying the leaks about Muralis report. Shame shame shame on you Sri Lanka.

    I'm hoping you're joking but I'm fearing you're not.

    No place for comments like these here thank you very much.

    The Sri Lankan Cricket Board is almost as culpable as the ICC in regards to this entire fiasco. They have been habitually disingenuous, deliberately provocative and have perpetually (with a great degree of success) sought to make this affair one of the subcontinent vs the rest of the world.

    The fact that they don't have a venue, date, or any corroborative evidence for this allegation regarding Broad is obviously a further slight on their character, but even more so, I think maybe a site like cricinfo (or whichever news agency they use as a source) could be a little more careful and check more conclusively what they print. Because, even though this smear has since been cleared up, it's already done it's job in the heads of many people following the issue.

    You're welcome.

    Yes, I'm really complaining about luckyeddie being a post-modernist. Considering the context of my first post on this thread, how can you not tell that I'm joking? I'm from Cape Town anyway.

    You've been hopefully smoking the springbok droppings again, I fear.

    Your first post in this thread looked to me to be a light-hearted bit of banter of the type I highly approve of, lampooning the Sri Lankan position (or it would be if they have the gumption to admit it).

    I posted a 'thumbs up' emoticon which in anyone's language is an indication of approval. I also posted the message 'You are really Arjuna Ranatunga and I claim my five pounds'. That's based upon an old newspaper thing in the UK, and once again it's agreeing with the aptness of your comment.

    Andre picked you up on your 'rant' comment because of other comments of an almost identical nature aimed in my direction in the last 10 days.

    I guessed that you got it. I was just responding to Andre, who didn't. Glad to see this board isn't completely humourless.

    Your five pounds is in the post. It is the equivalent of about 17,865 SA Rands. I've had to re-mortgage my house to cover it.

    In fairness, Andre is aware of some things that others on here are not party to. It's not your fault you were not to know that.

    Thanks for the fiver. I have decided to re-invest it in South Africa, which should keep Thabo Mbeki's government going for another 5 years.

    Nice to see Murali is STILL bowling the doosra. In fact, he's just claimed a wicket with it. If he's hoping to win sympathisers by blatantly cheating like this, it's obviously more than just his arm that's deformed.

    He is being exceedingly silly if that is the case.
