COLOMBO- Sri Lankan batsman Tillakaratne Dilshan has played down the supposed religious altercation he had with Pakistan's Ahmed Shehzad during the ODI series.

While Shehzad has been reprimanded by the PCB for his comments, caught on camera by a journalist and then taken to the board.

The moment occurred when the teams were leaving the field after the third ODI."If you are a non-Muslim and you turn Muslim, no matter what you do in your life, you’ll go straight to heaven," Shehzad seemed to have told Dilshan. Dilshan's reply was unclear, but Shehzad apparently responded, "Then be ready for the fire."
