The CID today recorded a 9-hour long statement from Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) CEO Ashley De Silva in connection with the fraudulent attempt to transfer USD 5.5 million, connected to broadcasting rights of the England tour, to an offshore account.

Earlier, the CEO of the SLC lodged the complaint with the Financial Crimes Investigation Division (FCID) under the direction of Sports Minister Faiszer Musthapa to probe the attempted fraud.

The investigation was later handed over to the CID by IGP Pujith Jayasundara.

    It's prime time to dissolve the Sri Lankan Test status and perhaps ODI status given the poor performance of the players and corruption among the authority. ICC should take serious actions against these unacceptable sportsmanship in the gentleman's game. That would keep away the money following to cricket and eventually greedy officers and players leave cricket forever. On the other hand, people will not waste their time/energy for watching games which could have spent in something useful.
