Six umpires, including three Sri Lankans who were allegedly caught in a TV sting willing to fix decisions in cricket matches, have been suspended till the completion of inquiry by the International Cricket Council (ICC).

Issuing a statement, the ICC said that "...ICC and its relevant Full Member Boards have agreed not to appoint any of the umpires named in a sting operation recently conducted by India TV to any domestic or international cricket matches pending the outcome of the ongoing investigations into the allegations made."

"The officials named are not contracted by the ICC and those Boards who employ and nominate the umpires directly will conduct the investigations as a matter of urgency," the ICC said.

    just yesterday several 'patriots" were blaming that this was an Indian conspiracy, followed by the usual LTTE diaspora mitivated stuff. Now what do these guys have to say

    India has a better record than SL. We should just accept this truth. And strive to improve our standards.

    The ICC should not appoint umpires from Asian Countries. India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh are in the same boat. They should appoint only genuine umpires from Australia and England.

    Corruption has really taken hold of our society, from the very top down and the country is being wrecked from within.

    What can we expect in a lawless country when corruption is encouraged and fostered by the powers that be.

    Oh yeah we know how 'genuine' Hair and Emerson were. You guys need to remember no one has been found guilty yet. Not saying they are innocent but till its proved stop crucifying our umpires.

    Ravi Wednesday, 10 October 2012 10:06 AM

    Wonder where all the people who cried foul saying this is some Conspiracy against SL instigated by India...lol

    chris Thursday, 11 October 2012 02:20 AM

    very strangely no Indian umpires involved....a virtuous lot are they....

    pasha Wednesday, 10 October 2012 11:06 AM

    ICC should consider all possibilities before they name year of the umpire . last time who took it is it Dharmasena

    Bushel Thursday, 11 October 2012 02:55 AM

    Lal Wednesday, 10 October 2012 12:05 PM

    How about picking up umpires from Sri Lanka Police? Their conduct and integrity have always been unquestionable!

    Nimal Wednesday, 10 October 2012 01:09 PM

    Why didn't they include Indian Umpires for sting operation by Indian TV broadcaster?

    richardson Thursday, 11 October 2012 05:48 AM

    They won,t give them out They just behead them

    Mahmood Wednesday, 10 October 2012 01:29 PM

    you should not generalise everyone

    Sammy Thursday, 11 October 2012 05:54 AM

    The umpires names have already been published and they are not top tier ones. Kumar Dharmasena of Sri Lanka won the best umpire's ICC award for 2011 in the recently held ceremony in Sri Lanka. Pakistani umpires Aleem Dar and Asad Rauf to have received accolades. Australian umpires and some others from western countries have been found wanting, in recent times.

    this guys also should be suspended.

    James Thursday, 11 October 2012 06:22 AM

    Nope, according to another article which revealed the names, he was not. So leave Dharmasena alone.
