Biscuits banned in Sri Lankan dressing room: Gurusinha


18 August 2017 10:43 am - 22     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


Sri Lankan players are not allowed to eat biscuits in the dressing room, according to the team manager, Asanka Gurusinha.

Speaking exclusively from Sri Lanka on the rumor that the manager had a fight with the players on this issue and they broke the crockery in protest, the manager said, “our physio and trainer are in charge of food at game and they have banned biscuits in the changing room”.

“The other day there were biscuits in the changing room and I informed the catering staff to take it out as our trainer did not want the players to eat in the changing room”.

“There was absolutely no argument with any players or support staff on this issue. In fact the players were even not aware that the biscuits were kept in the changing room”, he added.

“When the players heard this rumor, they even called me and told me not to worry and they all know that the news was not true and that they are all behind me”, Gurusinha further added.

The manager also dismissed the rumor of his resignation or being sacked.

“All the rumor regarding I have resigned is not true”, the manager concluded. It has also been confirmed with few other sources that the manager has NOT been asked to leave.

Gurusinha has been contracted with the SLC board till 2019. (Pakistan Observer)

    This guy AG has to go, if our team is to perform well. He is the main cause of our team's under performance. All talk and no action.

    Apparently, the biscuit has become the scapegoat for all the recent losses of the SLC team on the field. What a silly and stupid thing to do.

    So our pathetic performances have come down to biscuits. And the manager is coming out courageously to clarify the rights and wrongs. Our cricket administration is nuts.

    Good decision. Now Sri Lanka can win all matches!!

    joe Friday, 18 August 2017 01:06 PM

    so you see it was biscuits that caused the loss in all 3 tests not bowling fielding or batting .

    Oh Can't we give biscuits to Parliamentarians, so that they will be out soon?

    HaHa Friday, 18 August 2017 04:02 PM

    Parliament has been underperforming since we gained independence, they don't need biscuits for that

    cric batta Friday, 18 August 2017 01:16 PM

    it means we have to wait till 2019 to watch a match.

    rrps Friday, 18 August 2017 01:31 PM

    thumpane gamaya Friday, 18 August 2017 04:53 PM

    Players must get Gura to eat "Hoppers". Then he will leave.

    Clear evidence that Sri Lankans forget the past. They forgot the glory of days of LEMON PUFF while discussing so much about biscuits. Good to keep politics out AG.

    So what difference is it going to make by not giving them biscuits. As the sports minister said put them into heavy labor to bring down their stomachs.

    If this story is indeed a rumour, you are only perpetuating it by publishing it.

    Eating Biscuits is like an elixir of life.Even former parliamentarian Weerawansa survived on biscuits during his fast unto death protests.
