Whilst stating that former Sports Minister Mahindananda Aluthgamage had confirmed the allegations of match-fixing he made previously, former State Minister and Samagi Jana Balawegaya (SJB) candidate Ranjan Ramanayake said he will lodge complaints with the CID, Bribery Commission and ICC calling for investigations on the 2011 Cricket World Cup final.

“I made these allegations both at a press conference and in Parliament years ago and no one took any notice. However, Minister Aluthgamage had confirmed my allegation today,” he said.

“However, chief of the ICC anti-corruption unit met me when he was in Sri Lanka some time back and inquired details on the allegations I made. Therefore, I will call for investigations on Minister Aluthgamage’s allegation,” he said.

“I have evidence to prove that some influential people had got luxury jeeps from India in exchange for fixing the Cricket World Cup 2011 final,” he also said. (Yohan Perera)

    It is very unfortunate that even idiots have started involving cricket comments.

    It is our curse that Sri Lanka doesn’t have any other neighbour except India.

    Jeeves Monday, 22 June 2020 04:39 AM

    There is one thing in common between the statements made by Minister Mr. Aluthgamage and Mr. Ranjan Ramanayake. That's the evidence both of them have to prove their allegation of match fixing. Both of them are from different (rival) political parties. Let the ICC begin their investigation.

    Mr Ranjan why are you silent on Karuna's statement, can't you complain to the CID with regard to his open admission that he killed 2000 - 3000 of our armed forces in one day? When our soldiers are blamed by the UNHRC?

    Ranjan, please stop this nonsense and concentrate on things that will give positive results to the country. Like Kicking out RW out of UNP!

    Cicket lover Monday, 22 June 2020 08:41 AM

    Big mouth Ranjan likes to be in the limelight. Let him try to be a famous CID officer - just for a few people not the majority.

    BEFORE YOU FIND OTHER PEOPLE'S FAULTS AND LODGE COMPLAINTS, TRY TO FIND YOUR OWN AND CORRECT YOURSELF.
