Kumar Dharmasena, a former international cricketer and current umpire in the ICC Elite Panel, has found himself in the midst of big controversy, which has sent shockwaves through the cricketing community. A private video has come to light recently, in which an individual, who is allegedly referred to as Kumar Dharmasena, appears in a compromising position, performing indecent and lewd acts and gestures on camera.
This unforeseen situation has brought about a lot of speculation and uncertainty around Kumar Dharmasena, who has been an esteemed public figure for decades in the cricketing world. The emergence of explicit content has cast a huge shadow on cricket, which is widely regarded as the gentleman’s game.
Although the authenticity of the private video is yet to be determined, the social media has already given its verdict on what the Sri Lankan might have allegedly done. But regardless, many questions about the aforementioned situation are still unanswered, with the biggest one being, “Is the individual appearing in the video really Kumar Dharmasena?”
As the story continues to reach a wider audience, the on-field accomplishments of Kumar Dharmasena from his playing days, along with his umpiring exploits in recent years, are getting overshadowed to say the least. He will probably become a symbol of ridicule for any normal person, who reads the current allegations on him, let alone a cricket fan who has some idea about who the Sri Lankan is.
Hopefully, Kumar Dharmasena isn’t involved in the private video controversy, for the sake of cricket, more than anything else. But, if he is guilty as charged pending a potential investigation, then the cricket world won’t be remembering him for anything except this controversy.
