Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) on Saturday denied any knowledge of its player being accused of match fixing in the on- going Indian Premier League (IPL).

“No, we are not aware of such an occurrence. If it had happened the BCCI would have informed us,” the SLC secretary, Nishantha Ranatunga was quoted as saying by PTI.

“The governing body would definitely investigate the matter if informed by the BCCI,” said Ranatunga. According to reports, a bookie named Sonu Yogendra alias Malad has told the crime branch in Mumbai that he paid Rs 10 crore to a Sri Lankan player to fix a match.
