* Sri Lanka Cricket to fully cooperate with the ICC investigation
Mon, Sep 25, 2017, 10:32 am SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Sept 25, Colombo: Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) Sunday confirmed that the International Cricket Council (ICC) Anti-Corruption Unit (ACU) has commenced a preliminary inquiry with regard to various allegations that had been circulating in the recent past.

At a meeting held Saturday at SLC Headquarters the Executive Committee issued a directive to all SLC officials and employees to extend their fullest cooperation providing any and all information required in order to assist the ACU in a thorough inquiry.

"We are most pleased that the ICC ACU has decided to initiate this inquiry," SLC Chief Executive Officer Ashley de Silva said commenting on the inquiry.

"We request all those who have any information to come forward and help with this inquiry by declaring all their information and evidence rather than casting aspersions from the sidelines and damaging the reputation of our players, our cricket and our Nation. We believe this will exonerate our National players, who themselves have requested an inquiry," he said.

"We are committed to working closely with the ICC to complete this inquiry expeditiously and give our players the freedom to concentrate on playing their cricket without the cloud of these various allegations, which no doubt affect their game, hanging over them," he added.
