"I have nothing against the players".

When News1st inquired the Sports Minister regarding the matter, he claimed that he was not asked to approve the ODI team by Sri Lanka Cricket, which is why he called back the team.

Though the procedure was such, approval of the Sports Minister was not taken for the ODI team against India.
