BPL Match Fixing Allegations

Sri Lanka Cricket wishes to state that contrary to the several articles carried in the Print and Electronic media saying that Kaushal Lokuarachchi had pleaded guilty to match fixing, he was not charged for any corrupt activity and the only offence he had committed was a failure to report an approach made to him, which he had rejected.

We would also like to confirm that he has cooperated with the ICC in the investigation and that he has not been sanctioned and the proceedings are continuing.

Since these articles have caused Kaushal Lokuarachchi immense distress and pain of mind, we request your esteemed media organization to carry this clarification prominently.
