The International Cricket Council has confirmed it has initiated investigations in Sri Lanka and its Anti-Corruption Unit officers recently visited the country.

ICC’s General Manager – ACU, Alex Marshall, said: “The ICC Anti-Corruption Unit works to uphold integrity in cricket and this includes conducting investigations where there are reasonable grounds to do so. There is currently an ICC investigation underway in Sri Lanka. Naturally as part of this we are talking to a number of people”.

He added, “We will not comment any further on an ongoing investigation. If anyone has information that would assist the ACU in its enquiries, we would urge them to get in touch. "

He said such information could be sent to contactacu@icc-cricket.com.

Last Friday (22) Sri Lanka Cricket said it has received a petition from 40 cricketers urging the SLC to launch an inquiry into corruption allegations, leveled by former fast bowler and Selector Pramodya Wickramasinghe.

In response, issuing a media release, Wickramasinghe said it is not ethical for SLC to probe the allegations and urged to established a Presidential Commission to investigate the matters raised by him.
