SL Cricket, Randiv apologize to Sehwag

Sri Lanka Cricket on Tuesday apologised to India's Virender Sehwag for a "no ball" bowled by off spinner Suraj Randiv denying the not out opener a 100 in their tri-series play in Dambulla.

Meanwhile, Sehwag also tweeted on Tuesday that Randiv has apologized to him for the action.

"Hi guys Randiv came to my room n apologize," he posted on his Twitter account.

The right handed batsman cracked an unbeaten 99 in 10-ball to muster India post a six-wicket victory over the island nation on Monday. He said an action would be followed after getting a probe report into the "No Ball" incident.

Sehwag was just one short of his 13th ODI hundred when Randiv, who had not bowled a no ball in the Test or ODI series this season, bowled one which was hit by the opener for a six.
However, it did not count because the no ball amounted to India's winning run leaving Sehwag on an unbeaten 99.

"In the morning, Ranatunga called me up personally and apologised on behalf of the Board for the Sehwag incident," India manager Biswal said.

"He said this was not in the spirit of the game. Nishantha said 'We have a good relationship with India and we apologise for the incident'," Biswal said.
