Hashan Tillekaratne will reveal the names regarding the match fixing scandal if the necessary protection is given to his family, Mrs. Apsari Tillekaratne, the wife of the former Sri Lankan Test Cricket captain told Daily Mirror online

Mrs. Tillekaratne added that they had received several death threats and that their lives would be in danger if the names were disclosed. Therefore if their safety was guaranteed he would reveal the names, she said

Former Sri Lankan Test Captain Hashan Tillekaratne made a second statement today with the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) regarding his  allegations of match fixing scandals since 1992 that he exposed to the media earlier this month.

The CID has asked Mr. Tillekaratne to come and make another statement today as they had to deal with a few clarifications over his first statement that he made on Tuesday.

He was asked to come to the CID office today and make a statement over the match fixing allegations, the CID said. (Daily Mirror online)

    Hashan, You need to learn that if you are living in Sri Lanka, if you dont like something going on, you should just keep quiet. Protesting or disagreeing to it will lead to something unpleasent in the end.

    Lot of people like this stir trouble for themselves in SL and then apply to migrate to Australia saying that if he lives in SL, he will get killed. There are few like that already living in Australia. People like them will do any low act to get what they want.

    With so many bookies in parliment you can never say who is involved.

    You have missed the essential point of the allegation, its not about politics or naming names, does he have verifiable evidence of the allegation, if not shut up.
    As for the matter of match fixing, the Pakistan V SL 20/20 final raised questions as did some of the recent England V Australia matches.

    Either way he is in trouble now. No way out whether he likes it or not. He should have kept his mouth shut.

    carefull. Mr. Hashan. make sure you are not living in Australia or Uk. This is socialist, democratic Sri Lanka.

    Dushantha Saturday, 07 May 2011 03:34 AM

    Same like the way you were playing cricket. Facing all the balls with thattu (just defensive) when there are no balls trying to hit and get out

    He now has to find a reason tocoverup for his lies.What a shame for personal gain he has tarnished the name of the country.Leagle action should be taken against him.

    ajith Saturday, 07 May 2011 04:40 AM

    It is high time the ICC intervene and punish the culprits like the way they did to Pakistani players recently.....

    Nihal Amarasekera Saturday, 07 May 2011 05:34 AM

    Had a high regard to this cricketer; now; as a true politician ruining himself; good foil for the former Army Commander.

    Miliband Saturday, 07 May 2011 05:29 AM

    Is he going to tell something regarding the last world cup also?

    Murali Saturday, 07 May 2011 06:01 AM

    Well said tharanga!

    V Andrew Friday, 06 May 2011 01:13 PM

    This man is losing whatever the respect I had for him as a cricketer. Just goes on to show what politics can do to your character.

    Farook Friday, 06 May 2011 01:19 PM

    They will fix you Heshan. Why wait 2 decades to spill it out. You have said that it is because of threats. Now you will get bigger threats and killing is a way of life in this blessed Island.

    Hashan indeed has taken a tiger by the tail and now he will have to contend with its fangs and claws. May he come out of it in one piece!!!

    Farzan Friday, 06 May 2011 01:48 PM

    Please don't make your life at risk. If players made the mistakes by selling the match they should be punished. Please protect yourself and your family from the punishment of wrong doers who sold the match.

    Kiri Putha Sunday, 08 May 2011 02:37 AM

    Let's go Thilakaratne Let's go.......
