Former Sri Lanka Test captain Hashan Tillekaratne will be making a special statement tomorrow at the Western Province Provincial Council regarding the match fixing allegations made by him.

The former Sri Lanka cricket captain Hashan Tillekaratne made a sensational revelation that match fixing has been common in Sri Lanka's cricket and promised that he would come out with the names of the responsible persons in the near future.

Tillkaratne who led Sri Lanka in Ten Tests between 2003 and 2004 said that he could vouch with responsibility that Match fixing has been a problem in Sri Lanka's cricket since 1992.

"I can tell this in agreement with my conscience. Match fixing is not something that started happening yesterday or today. According to my knowledge, it happened since 1992. I say this with great responsibility" said Tillekaratne who played 83 Tests and 200 One Day Internationals for Sri Lanka between 1986 and 2004.

"I am not saying that this match (The world cup final) was fixed. But anyway match fixing is something which has been in this country over a period of time. This has spread like a cancer today" Tillekaratne who has been a life member of the prestigious MCC since 2008 explained.

Meanwhile former Sri Lankan captain Kumar Sangakkara stated that Hashan Tillekaratne should work with the ACSU unit of the ICC and other authorities in Sri Lanka if he has "anything more than allegations, as it's dangerous to throw names around." (Daily Mirror online)
