In the final, Sri Lanka made 274/6 off their 50 overs thanks to Mahela Jayawardene's unbeaten 103. Arjuna Ranatunga is regarded as one of the best captains in cricket history, he reduced himself to a laughing stock with the claim.

Ranatunga, who is the Minister of Petroleum and Renewable Resources of Sri Lanka, said this in response to remarks made by former Sri Lanka captain Kumar Sangakkara who earlier questioned as to whose responsibility the 2009 Tour of Pakistan was arranged. "When we lost, I was distressed and I had a doubt", Ranatunga said. "I think to clear the air, he should back his claims with proofs", said Indian opener Gautam Gambhir, quoted Press Trust of India.

After Ranatunga stoked up a controversy, the players from the India cricket team, who were a part of that win in the 2011 World Cup final, were asked about their opinions, and the likes of Gautam Gambhir and Ashish Nehra were pretty emphatic in their replies. As per several media reports, Nehra said,"I don't wish to dignify Ranatunga's comments by airing my views on the issue". But yes, it is disappointing when someone of his stature says something like this, " Nehra said in an interview. This is not the first time that Ranatunga has raised questions about the 2011 World Cup final.
