Former Sri Lanka captain Hashan Tillakaratne said he would stand by the match fixing allegations he had made earlier but said that he would not expose the names of the involved people on legal advice, and instead said would submit the evidence to the International Cricket Council.

He did not come out with any facts, alleging that there was a conspiracy to silence his exposure.

Asked why he waited for nearly two decades to make the allegations Tillakaratne replied “For my security”.

Tillakaratne who had reportedly made a statement in the chamber of the Western Provincial Council, later came out meet a media scrum of nearly a hundred journalists who had been waiting patiently for him for hours at the gate of the council.

The cricketer turned politician who is a member of the Western Provincial Council wore a white national dress and addressed the media.

He then distributed a written copy of the statement where he made several more allegations, mostly against the administrators but did not provide any material to support his match fixing allegations.

    Hashan's appointment as Captain of Sri Lanka was also fixed. he carried the bags of Arjuna (even now) and that is why he was appointed.

    lapatikolla Tuesday, 03 May 2011 06:11 PM

    Hashan is a thorough gent on and off the field. I see no reason why he should tell any liues.I believe him.

    Chamsi Tuesday, 03 May 2011 06:59 PM

    omelette Tuesday, 03 May 2011 12:29 PM

    Big mistake in giving captaincy to Hashan - fixing or no fixing.

    Yehiya Tuesday, 03 May 2011 12:45 PM

    Its better to tell the story in the provincial council meeting.

    SidathB Tuesday, 03 May 2011 12:44 PM

    Many contradictions in all statements. All he prefer to defer . Finally he will say no match is fixed.
