Ranatunga: Sri Lanka has best chance to win cup

The man who led Sri Lanka to its last World Cup title says the team will not have a better chance of winning the tournament for many years.
Arjuna Ranatunga, who played for Sri Lanka from 1982 to 2000, tells The Island newspaper Wednesday that playing at home in the quarterfinals and semifinals is a huge advantage.
Playing at home was "a luxury we couldn't afford when we won the World Cup in 1996," he said. Sri Lanka lost in the final of the 2007 tournament in Barbados to Australia.
