There have been a plethora of strange dressing room incidents but this one surely the best one out of them. It has been heard that in the Sri Lankan dressing room, biscuits were banned.
The story was confirmed by Sri Lanka team manager Asanka Gurusinha ahead of the ODI series against India. Gurusinha slammed speculations of a fight breaking out in the Sri Lankan dressing room where players broke crockery in protest of the biscuit ban.
As per the reports of observerbd.com, Gurusinha said, “Our physio and trainer are in charge of food at the game and they have banned biscuits in the changing room. The other day there were biscuits in the changing room and I informed the catering staff to take it out as our trainer did not want the players to eat in the changing room.”
He further elaborated, “There was absolutely no argument with any players or support staffs on this issue. In fact, the players were even not aware that the biscuits were kept in the changing room. When the players heard this rumor, they even called me and told me not to worry and they all know that the news was not true and that they are all behind me.”
Gurusinha concluded by completely neglecting another rumor of his resignations or being sacked by Sri Lanka Cricket. Earlier Sri Lankan sports minister Dayasiri Jayasekara asked for a report after a demoralizing defeat to India in the Tests.
Sri Lankan team needs to come with flying colors in the limited overs series, they can be a surprise package for India as they were the only team to beat the defending Champions in ICC Champions Trophy 2017 in league matches.
