A Gampaha businessman who had placed a bet on the premise that India was certain to win the T-20 World Cup final died of a heart attack when he found that India had lost the match.
 
He was rushed to the Gampaha Hospital but was dead at the time of his admission. Gampaha City Coroner P.P.R.P. Rajapakse held the postmortem examination and ruled that the cause of death was a severe cardiac failure.

Meanwhile the businessman’s wife said her husband had not suffered from any major ailment before. (Tony Karunanayake)

    The house of Yuvraj was pelted and damaged because he did not play well.This is Indian way of expression of their angry or disappointment but they will not take any foolish idea to kill themselves.
    So who advised this man to dream that the Indian team will won the cup against our man Mr. Malinga?stupid man

    Don't be like Indians? You people are prejudice. Have you looked at the morality in Sri Lanka lately? via DM Android App

    Actually I bet for India too, but not because of greediness, but to reduce the sorrow of loosing another final.
    I lost the bet but I am really happy.

    lawry Tuesday, 08 April 2014 02:08 AM

    You guys don't even give a thought to the surviving family of this man. What kind of Indians are you guys?. Thoughtless maniacs. The dead guy was a gambler and not a cricket or Sri Lanka fan.

    chennaiguy Monday, 07 April 2014 06:03 PM

    Sorry way to go, guess t20 should come with a statutory warning. " not for the faint hearted" :p

    manpei Tuesday, 08 April 2014 06:56 AM

    Some really vicious comments from people here, a person has died It may not have had anything to do with the match just timing I guess. If srilanka had lost you would be abusing the team and wishing them dead I guess. whats happened to our srilankans have they no hearts.

    manpei Tuesday, 08 April 2014 06:59 AM

    What a terrible thing to say. It's just a Criket match and sometimes you win sometimes you loose. People chill, just because he wanted to make some money doesn't make him a terrible person. A terrible person is someone who says honda wade when someone dies.

    Its a pity that a ardent follower of cricket lost his life. Mustn't take sports seriously and bet on your savings, unfortunately the family is now suffering. Not fair to criticize the person unpatriotic, this will affect his family very badly. He had his own agenda to earn some extra cash, but it backfired. Let us pray that his soul rests in peace.

    come on this is a game win or defeat why your guys spoil ur life...this is a real foolish please do not behave like Indian. God has give 6th sense and why don we use it

    India never bet against his own country. This is even a black mark to the entire Sri Lanka. I first heard this news from a Bangaladesh taxy driver here in KSA.

    aja Monday, 07 April 2014 10:16 AM

    Bet against your own country die like a fool

    First of all being a SriLankan, without supporting his own boys went on to bet for India. Very sad anyway, we should not take the sports to our head too much.
