Two employees of the Sri Lanka Cricket's World Cup Secretariat who sold Rs.50 World Cup tickets for Rs.1300 and Rs1500 for the upcoming match between Sri Lanka and Pakistan were arrested by the Colombo Crimes Division (CCD) this afternoon.

They have confessed to the police that they are employees attached to the Sri Lanka Cricket's World Cup Secretariat. The suspects are residents of Maligawatta and they are to be produced before the courts and now being questioned under detention orders. (Supun Dias)

    Damn good. Srilankan Cricket's Chairman should also resign for failing to implement controls to prevent this knowing very well it has happened before.

    Very good indeed. Always seek opportunities! Why only Rice and not Match Tickets? Level the playing field!

    What is wrong with the police? These people should be elevated to Cabinet rank, not prosecuted.

    CATCH THE SHARKS, NOT THE SPRATS !

    These are only minor thieves.
