The International Cricket Council (ICC) has informed us that the corruption in Sri Lankan cricket is not limited to betting centres but goes beyond to the underworld as well, Sports Minister Harin Fernando said.

He told a news briefing held at the Ministry that the ICC investigations had revealed that the underworld was also involved in Sri Lankan cricket.

“I saw a report which they showed me but I will not reveal the names in as it has been marked private and confidential,” the minister said adding that they were in the process of introducing laws to prevent match-fixing.

    Very true in deed !! What can you do in sri lanka without the involvement of the underworld ? Nothing !! They're in to sports, banking system, politics, law enforcement, education, healthcare system (not referring to GMOA), media, education institutes, imports and exports you name it they're in it !!

    Not a surprise as the former head of SLT is a well known bookie.

    It is better to reveal than conceal it.

    If u say 'underworld is involved' then u must be knowing who they are right ??? Arrest them right away !!! You can't and u will not reveal names because you will not get your commission ....

    Does the Minister have the guts and willingness to bring all those rogues before the court of law?
