On Tuesday, Dinesh Chandimal, Sri Lankan Test Skipper said that witchcraft helped his team win the test series against Pakistan.
Chandimal told the reporters that he had received special blessings from a sorcerer ahead of the two-match series in the United Arab Emirates.
“I am always ready to accept the blessings of anyone –whether it is a meyni or any clergy. You can have talent, but without this blessing, you can’t move forward”. says Chandimal.
A week ago, Sri Lankan Sports Minister Dayasiri Jayasekera, issued a statement in which he denied ordering the use of witchcraft to win the Test series against Pakistan.

He also threatened to sue the local female sorcerer who posted a photo on her Facebook account. Chandimal was seen with her at her home in the photo. In a post, she claimed that Test skipper requested her to cast a spell to ensure Sri Lankan win after he was ordered to do so by the Sports Minister.
Jayasekera said, “I told her that if she didn’t take down that post, I will complain to the police and also take legal action against her.I did not direct the captain or the team to get her services.”
However, she removed the photo and post after Jayasekera issued a threatening statement.
Sri Lankan cricket team is struggling these days. After being whitewashed by India in all formats, they faced clean sweep defeats from Pakistan in 5 ODIs and 3 T20sI series.
His hilarious confession is bagging mockery from the disappointed Sri Lankan supporters.
How idiotic is dinesh chandimal’s statement regarding their victory in the test series against pakistam
