Sri Lanka's World Cup winning skipper Arjuna Ranatunga has applauded the country's women's world cup team, stating that they were an example for their male counterparts.
Sri Lankan eves came up with some giant-killing efforts
in the ongoing ICC Women's World Cup in Mumbai, where they
defeated defending champions England and the formidable hosts
India to make it to the Super Six stage of the tournament.
"The women's team is an example for the men's team and
their senior players' commitment is a lesson to some senior
players in the men's team," Ranatunga said.
"They have beaten England and India when no one gave them
any chance," he added.
Ranatunga was also all praise of the women's team captain
"Captain Siriwardene has been excellent in her
leadership," he said.
Meanwhile, 'The Island' newspaper today highlighted the
financial contrast between the men's and women's players.
A story captioned 'Cricket's double standards', which
carried photographs of Mahela Jayawardene and Siriwardene,
stated that while men get USD 3500 per ODI, the women get only a paltry USD 100
