Sri Lankan players also approached

Sep 5, 2010 8:00:00 PM - aussieindolanka.com
Members of the Sri Lankan team have been approached by people being described as "suspicious characters" more than once over the last year. Team sources, however, told ESPNcricinfo that contrary to newspaper reports, the Sri Lankan team did not report any specific player to the ICC’s Anti-Corruption and Security Unit (ACSU). During the 2009 World Twenty20 in England, several players first brought to the notice of the Sri Lankan management that there were suspicious people "hanging around and trying to talk and approach". The matter was immediately reported to the ACSU, whereupon Alan Peacock, senior investigator of the unit, took statements from the players who had made the reports. Nishantha Ranatunga, the SLC secretary, too, confirmed that "the report was handed over to ACSU by manager Brendon Kuruppu". The team management also got Peacock to speak to the team on these issues, and players were encouraged to report any approach openly. Read more: www.cricinfo.com/srilanka/content/story/475872.html
