Sri Lanka Cricket invites ICC to investigate on fixing allegations

Sri Lanka Cricket decided to invite ICC Anti-Corruption unit to investigate match-fixing allegations raised by the opposition party MP Nalin Bandara. Speaking in Parliament recently, Bandara, said everyone in the SLC setup is involved in corruption and the result was compromised.

A statement from SCL said, “The executive committee of SLC decided today to invite Mr Alex Marshall, the General Manager of the ICC anti-corruption unit to Sri Lanka to investigate recent allegations of match-fixing made by a parliamentarian regarding the recently concluded Pakistan tour.”

It further added, “Sri Lanka Cricket, as a full member of the ICC and mandated to uphold the integrity of the game at both the national and international level, believes that it is the correct course of action to take in light of the recent allegations made by the aforementioned parliamentarian, which have caused immense reputational damage to Sri Lanka Cricket and its stakeholders."
