    The word corruption in Cricket was associated with India, Pakistan and South Africa. Under Thilanga Sumathipapla, We managed to add our name also to that list. Irrespective of the outcome, we have tarnished our image..Sumathipala is the Ravi Karunanayake of cricket. Will never ever go away.

    This committee will revoke the bans on clubs and players.This itself must be a 'fix' of Sumathipala. He must have asked the board to suspend players and teams. He must have asked the clubs and players to appeal and now, through this committee, he will revoke the bans.Sumathipala = fixing = gambling
