The main opposition UNP said the warning issued to the Sri Lankan cricketers participating in the IPL tournament in India was unfair while it is a clear sign of politicization of the game.
UNP MP Harin Fernando told a press conference today that it is unfair to pressurize the Sri Lankan cricketers. He said this kind of exposure is essential for the Sri Lankan cricketers to improve themselves.
