The Sri Lankan cricket team returned home early Friday morning from India, and controversy is already brewing up as the side endured one of its worst campaigns in the tournament’s history. Pressed for reasons for the poor performance, Pramodaya Wickramasingha, the chief selector of the men’s team, made a rather explosive claim. A member of the World Cup-winning 1996 team, Wickramasingha alleged that it was an “outside conspiracy” that derailed Sri Lanka’s campaign in the 2023 edition. “Give me two days to disclose everything about it. This was the result of a conspiracy from outside,” Wickramasingha said, as quoted by PTI.
