SL manager defends Chandimal's 'meyeni' remark

Kolkata: Sri Lanka captain Dinesh Chandimal was on Thursday asked whether he sought any blessing from "meyni" (sorcerer) ahead of their gruelling India tour as team manager Asanka Gurusinha promptly came to his defence to avoid any further embarrassment.

The Sri Lankan skipper had stunned everyone last month when with his witchcraft confession that he had received a special blessing from a "meyni" ahead of their surprise series sweep against Pakistan in UAE.
Team manager and former Sri Lankan batsman Gurusinha played down the controversy and said they believe in performing on the ground as they begin the series with the Eden Test from November 16.
"He has answered some questions back there. In cricket, you got to get out there and perform on the field... Each player has to do that. That's the way the Sri Lankan team believe. Yes, we have our own religious beliefs like all of you.But at the end of the day, you go there and just play," Gurusinha said putting an end to the issue.
