India never played better in Lanka: Ranatunga

Colombo: Sri Lanka's world winning captain Arjuna Ranatunga was very much impressed by India's attacking brand of cricket and said India has never played better here.

"They have never played better here," Ranatunga said paying tribute to what he termed the vision of the Indian cricket administrators.

"Their planning is good and they have set goals in their mind," Ranatunga said.

India has already taken a 4-0 lead in the five-match series against Sri Lanka and the final match is scheduled here on Sunday.

Dismissing notions that he had problems with the Indian Cricket Board during his 11-month tenure as the chief of Sri Lanka Cricket, Ranatunga said, "I had excellent relations with (former BCCI President) Mr (Sharad) Pawar and (current BCCI President) Mr Shashank Manohar", Ranatunga said.

Ranatunga said he remained unimpressed by Twenty20 and believed Indian stars like Sachin Tendulkar and Rahul Dravid struggled in Sri Lanka last year because of too much of Twenty20.
