ICC Anti-Corruption Unit General Manager Alex Marshall, who is in Sri Lanka said that they have provided a detailed briefing to the Sri Lankan President, Prime Minister and Sports Minister on the serious allegations of corruption in cricket in the country.

“We are currently in Sri Lanka as part of our ongoing investigations into serious allegations of corruption in cricket in the country. The enquiries 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, Prime Minister and Sports Minister. We are receiving full support from the Competent Authority currently in place at Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) whilst elections for the SLC Board are pending.

“I’d like to make it clear that these investigations have been underway for a considerable time and do not relate to the series about to start in Sri Lanka. However, I will take the opportunity to brief both the teams over the coming days to ensure they remain alert to the risks from would be corruptors.” he said.

    The only problem is that the two people to whom the information is given are either corrupt themselves or help cover up corruption.

    Sara Wednesday, 03 October 2018 04:55 PM

    I hope General Manager Alex Marshall will return home well, without getting corrupted himself.

    Upul Wednesday, 03 October 2018 05:08 PM

    Mr. Alex Marshall, We knew this long before you found it. This has become the norm in SL society now.

    Corruption is a part of living for all our politicians and every institute. It runs in the vein's of most of the people.

    Arjuna the one who put us in the World Cup is a minister alright but cricket is not his portfolio. He must have that portfolio to put things in the right place.
