Sports Minister Dayasiri Jayasekara has complained to the FCID that two Sri Lankan support staff had approached cricketers Kusal Janith Perera and Rangana Herath requesting them to fix the Sri Lanka-West Indies test match which was played at Galle in October last year.
He said that the two cricketers had complained to the International Cricket Council’s (ICC) Anti-Corruption Officers regarding the proposal they had received from the two people who help the cricketers at the nets.
The minister said one of the two people was a close friend of a leading cricketer in the Sri Lankan national cricket team.
“We have got information that many of Sri Lankan Cricket support staff has been involved in match fixing for some time now. The two people had requested Kusal and Rangana to fix the SL-Windies test match played at Galle in November. I have directed the police to arrest those involved in this incident,” the minister said.

Actually, Sri Lanka Cricket board is a mess. Some time it is a like a elite or business people place. We can remember in our past and our prestigious team . But to day, every thing is decide by the money ????? keep away business people from cricket and give posts for the suitable professional cricketers.
