Srilanka board represent by the team manager has apoligised for what transpired in the final over of the inning in the last match versus India...what happened in the last over bowled by Randiv was against the spirit of the game, the action taken by him was incorrect for which he duly apologised...thats the spirit of the game...if you are making mistakes...learn from it...duly apologise and go on, which even the Sri lankan board felt and their manager apologising for the behaviour in denying Sehwag a century... So lets go on now...

its good that they have admited their fault. but if they really feel appology then they should at least fine thier captain and the bowler randiv. otherwise there is no meaning in making this appology.

This is a right gesture of the Srilankan cricket board after what happened in the last one day match, what was done was fully unappropriate and under hand tactics to deny Sehawag a well deserved century. It is good that they have accepted it and try to nullify the effects came due to this act. also what i feel they cannot take the wrath of Indian cricket board, so they are apologising.

I am sure mate that why Srilanka board is apologizing, its because of sportsman spirit or fear of having cold relations with their financial helper BCCI,anyways whatever is the reason Randiv should act in a more matured manner as Srilanka and Indian cricket teams have friendly relations and those should remain same.

It is good on their part to ask for an apology. But I'm not convinced with Sangakkara's behavior. He said that he did not know Sehwag was reaching his hundred. He should have also admitted his mistake. Anyway, as Sehwag said, it doesn't matter as long as India wins. Good one from Sehwag.
