The once world title holder Sri Lanka is passing a transitional period of cricket in the country; in the post retirement age of a bunch of legendary cricketers, the island nation has been struggling in the field to prove themselves a competent opponent whatsoever.
Sri Lanka, after their two match Test series win against Pakistan, was handed a 5-0 clean sweep in the one day international series brought criticisms back in the track and most surprising of all, a claim of exercising ‘Black Magic’ upon team Pakistan has also been forwarded.
Gonga Zoiza, a local sorcerer of Sri Lanka asserted she cast a spell of witchcraft upon the opponent, on request of Sri Lankan Sports Minister Dayasiri Jayasekera that ultimately paved the way of the national team to win the Test series.
Sports Minister Jayasekera, meanwhile, denied any such allegations and even threatened to sue Zoiza, the sorcerer.
He, therefore 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.”
“If she really cast a spell, how come we suffered a whitewash in the ODI series?” the minister asked.
Earlier, the incident brought into the light when Gonga Zoiza posted in her social media account about the phenomenon.
She wrote, “Chandimal came to me before leaving for the series against Pakistan (in the United Arab Emirates. My special thanks to minister Dayasiri Jayasekara for directing him to me. I will ensure a golden era for Sri Lanka cricket.”
She also posted a photo of Chandimal at her home on October 06.
