Ranatunga blames IPL, BCCI for India's drubbing in England

COLOMBO, August 25 (PTI): Former Sri Lanka captain Arjuna Ranatunga has blamed the BCCI and the IPL for India's debacle in England, saying the Board did not let the players prepare well for the tough English conditions. India surrendered its numero uno status to England after suffering a humiliating 4-0 whitewash. "They seem to have got carried away with their IPL. It seems like they don't need outside influences to harm Indian cricket, the BCCI is doing it," Ranatunga said. Ranatunga attributes lack of preparation as the main reason which caused the Indian down fall in England.
