ICC informs Sri Lankan President over corruption charges

Colombo, Oct 4: The International Cricket Council's Anti-Corruption Unit (ACU) has informed Sri Lankan President, Prime Minister and Sports Minister about the serious allegations of corruption in the Sri Lankan Cricket Board.

Investigations were launched a year ago against the Sri Lankan Cricket Board, on allegations of corruption. General Manager of ICC anti-corruption unit Alex Marshall said that Sri Lankan players have been informed about the issues, such as corruption and fixing before the upcoming series against England, so that they stay away from suspicious elements in the future.

'We are currently in Sri Lanka as part of our ongoing investigations into serious allegations of corruption in cricket (board) in the country. The inquiries are continuing, so it would not be appropriate to comment further, but I can confirm that we have, at their request, provided a detailed briefing to the Sri Lankan President, the Prime Minister and the Sports Minister.(UNI)
