SLC to complain to CID over alleged pitch fixing incident

Consequent to a letter received from the Minister of Sports Faiszer Musthapa with regard to the alleged pitch fixing incident, the Executive Committee of Sri Lanka Cricket convened an Emergency Meeting this evening (27th May, 2018) and decided to file a complaint over the incident with the Criminal Investigations Department (CID).

SLC said it will complain to the CID against the individuals allegedly involved in the pitch fixing incident as reported in an Al Jazeera documentary.

SLC has also decided to suspend, with immediate effect, the alleged individuals involved in the incident against whom ICC is carrying out investigations.

The Sri Lanka Cricket board says it will fully cooperate and offer all assistance to the ICC on its investigations on the said Al Jazeera documentary which has wider allegations globally.

SLC has also appointed a three member committee consisting of Mohan de Silva, Air Commodore Roshan Biyanwila and Channa Weerakkody to submit a report within three days, making recommendations on the existing protocols applying to the Management and Staff of every venue and to implement safeguards to prevent occurrences of such incidents in the future.
