Pakistan skipper Sarfraz Ahmed has dismissed Sri Lankan Test captain Dinesh Chandimal’s claim that the Lankans won the Test series because of “witchcraft” and receiving blessings from a sorcerer, the Hindustan Times reported.
“We lost the two Tests because of our poor batting and that is all,” Sarfraz said. “If they could win Test matches because of witchcraft or magic, then they should have also won the ODI and T20 series.”
Earlier this week, Chandimal told reporters he had received a special blessing from a meyni, or sorcerer, ahead of the two-match series in the United Arab Emirates.
“I am always ready to accept the blessings of anyone — whether it is a meyni or any clergy,” Chandimal told reporters after returning to Colombo.
