Sri Lanka’s ex- cricket team skipper Hashan Tillakaratne has said that his country had been fixing matches since 1992, yet again boosting the spectre of corruption in the game. Hashan Tillakaratne, who participated 83 Tests and 200 ODIs for Sri Lanka during his 15 yr career, mentioned he was ready to back-up his claims by identifying some of the people included.
“Match-fixing is some thing which has been in this state over a period of time. This has spread similar to a cancer today,” Tillakaratne was cited as indicating on Friday.”As per to my information, it happened since 1992.”There were risks of this matter being uncovered at numerous occasions. But it was pushed down by offering cash to numerous folks.
“If the folks who were accountable for that are hearing to this, I express this today with great accountability, I will quickly uncover the details of those accountable,” he explained.Tillakaratne, who skippered Sri Lanka between April the year 2003 and March ’04, halted short of revealing the World Cup 2011 Sri Lanka vs India final match was rigged, although he mentioned concerns about the selection of the Sri Lankan side that’s defeated by India.
