Sri Lankan cricket officials said they are studying tapes of a television sting operation purportedly showing international umpires agreeing with undercover reporters to help fix matches.
Sri Lanka Cricket chief executive Ajith Jayasekara said on Tuesday there has been no official communication from the International Cricket Council (ICC) on allegations by India TV that Sri Lankans were among six international umpires willing to fix matches. He said the local anti-corruption unit will work with the ICC in the investigations.
A television broadcast on Monday purportedly exposes six umpires from Sri Lanka, Pakistan and Bangladesh. The ICC said it has launched an urgent investigation and called on the TV channel to provide the footage.
