Pakistan batsman Ahmed Shehzad allegedly done a religious comment towards Sri Lankan batsman Tillakaratne Dilshan while walking back towards the pavilion after the third One-Day International (ODI) between Sri Lanka and Pakistan at Dambulla. Shehzad has been seen in the video saying “when a non-muslim converts to muslim, no matter whatever he does in life he goes straight to heaven.“
The video footage of that controversy from Ten Sports has been uploaded on YouTube by Asian Mirror, a newspaper from Sri Lanka. There were reports that Pakistan Cricket Board is probing the incident that occurred after the third ODI. Dilshan was a muslim before converting to Buddhism at the age of 16. Dilshan, before converting was called Tuwan Muhammad Dilshan.
“Ahmed has informed the PCB that it was his personal chat with Dilshan, and there was nothing more to it. What we understand is that no Sri Lanka Cricket official or our own manager lodged any complaint.” Pakistan cricket’s media manager Agha Akbar said to the APT (Associated Press Trust).
