National players want Pramodya allegations probed



article_image

Forty national players including Test captain Dinesh Chandimal and ODI skipper Upul Tharanga yesterday handed Sri Lanka Cricket a letter asking the board to probe the allegations made by former fast bowler Pramodya Wickramasinghe.

Wickramasinghe in a television interview had alleged that there was foul play during the fourth ODI between Sri Lanka and Zimbabwe at Suriyawewa, which the tourists won on the Duckworth-Lewis method.

The players called the allegations baseless.

Wickramasinghe had questioned former captain Angelo Mathews’ motives in promoting himself up the order and not bringing on Lasith Malinga during a crucial period of the run chase. Sri Lanka went onto suffer a first-ever series defeat at the hands of Zimbabwe.

The letter was written in a bid to support Mathews, who stepped down from captaincy after the series defeat to Zimbabwe.
