He told PTI, "I am surprised by Arjuna Ranatunga's allegations.

Ranatunga, who led Sri Lanka to glory in ICC Cricket World Cup 1996, said that Sports Ministry of Sports of Sri Lanka should order an inquiry into what happened to Sri Lanka team during the ICC Cricket World Cup 2011 final. Sri Lanka had appeared in a commanding position after the early dismissals of Sachin Tendulkar and Virender Sehwag in the chase, but India turned the game dramatically thanks partly to poor fielding, bowling by Sri Lanka. Arjuna Ranatunga is regarded as one of the best captains in cricket history, he reduced himself to a laughing stock with the claim. "We must investigate what happened to Sri Lanka at the 2011 World Cup final", he said. "So, I think we should hold an inquiry into this matter", he added. "I think to clear the air, he should back his claims with proofs", Gambhir said. There is no end to these kind of statements.

After Ranatunga stoked up a controversy, the players from the India cricket team, who were a part of that win in the 2011 World Cup final, were asked about their opinions, and the likes of Gautam Gambhir and Ashish Nehra were pretty emphatic in their replies. So let's not get into it.
