ICC Investigate 3 Sri Lankan Cricketers for match-fixing: SL Sports Minister

Three Sri Lankan cricketers are being currently probed by the ICC for match-fixing, Sports Minister Dullas Alahapperuma said here on Wednesday.

SLC strongly believes that what the honourable minister actually mentioned was about an investigation launched by the ICC anti-corruption unit against three former Sri Lanka players and not the current national players,” a SLC statement said.

Alahapperuma did not reveal players details, We are sorry to see that sports had fallen short of discipline and character,” he said.

“SLC strongly believes that what the honourable minister actually mentioned was about an investigation launched by the ICC anti-corruption unit against three former Sri Lanka players and not the current national players,” a SLC statement said.

Alahapperuma said “it was sad and the country had placed high hopes on Madushanka”. Madushanka was detained by Sri Lankan police last week on charge of possessing heroin. Subsequently, Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) suspended his contract. Alahapperuma said the government would soon focus on the dropping standards of cricket at the school level.
