A heated argument erupted between Petroleum Industry Minister Arjuna Ranatunga and Sports Minister Dayasiri Jayasekara over cricket at the weekly Cabinet meeting on Tuesday, it is learnt.

The problem cropped up when Minister Ranatunga made his observations on the Cabinet Paper presented by Minister Jayasekera in connection with the re-laying of the synthetic race track at the Sugathadasa Sports Complex.  

However, President Maithripala Sirisena intervened and the matter was settled.
