“It is truly disappointing that this outstanding tournament has ended with a team manager’s misbehaviour getting him banned for a match,” said Mr Roshan Mahanama.
Haider Azhar’s actions were completely contrary to the values and spirit of this wonderful game, and it is my responsibility to ensure that such transgressions are dealt with harshly.
