ICC has issued criminal charges against individuals of SLC – Arjuna


Former Test captain Arjuna Ranatunga has stated that the International Cricket Council has notified Sri Lanka Cricket and Minister of Sports Harin Fernando about criminal charges against certain individuals. SLC has been under investigations for the last two years and Ranatunga, a former Director of the ICC, made the statement yesterday.

"I got to know that the ICC has issued criminal charges against certain individuals of SLC and this has been notified to both the Sports Minister and SLC," Ranatunga said in a statement.

"The Minister has taken some efforts recently to remove people involved in betting out of the sport. I hope now with the latest development, the Minister will take steps against these people who have been charged.  We have had so many Sports Ministers in recent times but little action has been taken against people who have corruption charges. Hopefully at least now, with the ICC stepping in, efforts will be taken against these individuals," Ranatunga went onto say.

 "I have got to admit that the most damage for the game of cricket was done during the period of our government. If the government doesn’t act at least now, people will teach us a lesson," Ranatunga concluded.
