The International Cricket Council (ICC) is investigating alleged corruption in Sri Lanka, which centres around a taped conversation, a Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) press release has said.

A recording of the conversation had been given to a Sri Lankan media organisation, and SLC on Thursday, August 9. SLC then passed the tape on to the ICC's Anti-Corruption and Security Unit (ACSU), currently in the country for the SLPL. No local media outlets have as yet reported on any corruption allegations.

"The tape was handed over to an official of the ICC Anti Corruption and Security Unit [ACSU] currently in the country covering [the Sri Lanka Premier League]. Investigations are underway in coordination with the ICC," the statement said.

"We are unable to give any additional information other than what has been released to the media," SLC CEO Ajit Jayasekara said. "We are cooperating with the ICC as ACSU conducts the investigation."(ESPNcricinfo)

    ICC, please investigate properly throwing your toothless tiger status to a side.

    A new board to be appointed suddenly?

    John Monday, 13 August 2012 07:30 AM

    Yes Mr Logat will lift standards in SLC starting with a clean-up just as he has done in SA - he cannot be 'influenced'!

    Matalan Monday, 13 August 2012 07:31 AM

    Surprised? 'shouldn't be, as this is the correct projection of what's going on in all Govt. involved sections.

    Lanka Muslim, UK Monday, 13 August 2012 07:59 AM

    Then leave the ICC; forget cricket and play jug gudu only.

    balu Monday, 13 August 2012 02:14 PM

    WITH THIS GOVERNMENT WHATS NOT CORRUPT?
    PETROL, A'LEVEL, cricket, TREASURE HUNTERS, COCONUTS IMPORT AND THROW
    WHAT A COUNTRY

    peeda mossa Monday, 13 August 2012 02:36 PM

    Not at all, Minister, a only corrupted state for the time being. It might fail consequently, if this state of affairs continues unabated.

    Ganja Monday, 13 August 2012 08:10 AM

    Investigative the corruption is always better to identify the culprits. hats the matter who do it? we need corrupt less cricket in Sri Lanka

    Sweat Monday, 13 August 2012 08:39 AM

    If there is evidence to prove that corruption has indeed taken place in SLC, it will surround among the senior players, if proven so, it will be a sad story for SLC, as these same senior players are the high eaners in the IPL. Either way as some politico's might "say you can never have enough money" Still what does it matter, corruption is never uncovered in Sri Lanka. It is a country where corruption breeds and the people who can do something about it arn't, as they benefit from this virus as well. Not forgetting that they rob our hard earned money. So now you can sit and think why our cream citizens are now citizens elasewehere.

    Vipula Wijayaratne Monday, 13 August 2012 09:00 AM

    for sure :-)

    mama Monday, 13 August 2012 03:08 PM

    Does this have anything to do with the president asking people to support eliminating corruption from Sri Lanka? hmmm......coincidence?

    Daya Monday, 13 August 2012 09:01 AM

    why SLC can't take action? Is it because it doesnt understand the language used on the conversation or doesn't feel enough evidence to question?

    bonnie mallie Monday, 13 August 2012 09:34 AM

    typical sri lankan ...speculate and put someone down... wait till the facts are known

    Cyclops Monday, 13 August 2012 05:04 AM

    Believe me,there will be skeletons aplenty in SLC cupboards when this is over. But of course no heads will roll!

    Sunna Monday, 13 August 2012 09:25 AM

    Our boys are clean they respect the Lion flag ,their parents and the religion they beleieve in.
    Boyees, palyed well.che che not our boyees.

    S.Sriranjan Monday, 13 August 2012 04:09 PM

    Don't Worry! There are so many National Games to Play???

    Rambo Monday, 13 August 2012 04:40 PM

    Noop!

    First we will have our own investigative mechanism and wait for its report and then we see if ICC to get involved!!

    richardson Monday, 13 August 2012 09:40 AM

    Horu, Horu Horu Okkoma horu.

    Dadoriya Monday, 13 August 2012 05:20 AM

    Oops, we are a sovereign nation and no one can question or investigated us. A song we heard sometime back which we do not hear now.

    Appuhamy Monday, 13 August 2012 05:27 AM

    International conspiracy against Sri Lanka .....

    Nadeesha Monday, 13 August 2012 05:28 AM

    Uncles of corruption now probe and confirm innocence.

    Minister Monday, 13 August 2012 05:28 AM

    Is there any institution here from which the word "corruption" cannot be heard? Is this a failed state?

    Chandler Monday, 13 August 2012 05:57 AM

    If ICC would gets to the bottom of the problem, hopefully that will lead to investigating other corrupt deals in SLC, whcih is affecting Sri Lanka cricket big time.
    Only way out!

    pubudu Monday, 13 August 2012 11:14 AM

    This shows the democracy and willingness to curb the corruptions in Sri-Lanka. Even now showing corruption to the world with out fear. This is very good. There are many other institutions with corruptions , One is share market.

    Jayaa Monday, 13 August 2012 11:28 AM

    When I did my O/L in 1970 December, question papers of 5 subjects leaked out and each day, the morning newspapers published the question paper of that morning. It resulted in cancellation of those 5 subjects and fresh exam was held in March 1971. At least these days there are no news about leaking of question papers before the exam dates and foolproof in that respect. It is a very good sign despite mistakes in question papers.

    Nodrog Monday, 13 August 2012 06:26 AM

    It will be covered up because the rot starts from the top.

    Surprised........... Monday, 13 August 2012 06:14 AM

    This is why Logat was in town.......not to help the SLC but to investigate the corruption at the SLC......Hari hodai ney.
