I don't usually expect even a semblance of intelligence from those who blow Arjuna's trumpet because to do so one just cannot have a brain. But the least you could do is try without blatantly embarrassing yourself. 3657 of 7456 runs scored by Ranatunga came in matches won by Sri Lanka which is around 49% of his total ODI runs.

As for Sanga who was / is the wicket keeper of the side in addition to batting at number 3 often and coming into bat in the first 5 overs to face the music with the new ball, 6260 of the 9978 runs scored by Sanga thus far or 62% of his total ODI runs thus far have come in matches that Sri Lanka have won. Let's throw on top of that a total of 412 dismissals as the team's wicket keeper (331 catches and 81 st) with 282 or those dismissals (223 catches and 59 st) coming in matches won.

Overrated ODI batsman. Hardly a match winner. So many weirdly placed innings to give the advantage to the opposition.
