The International Cricket Council has denied claims made by Sri Lanka Cricket that it has cleared the SLC in an anti-corruption investigation.
The SLC claimed that the governing body had found no evidence of wrongdoing against them following allegations of match-fixing and other forms of corruption.
The ICC, however, clarified that the investigations are very much still on.
Speaking to Cricbuzz an ICC spokesman said “The investigations are ongoing and the ICC don’t comment on live investigations”.
The investigation had started last September after former Sri Lanka player, Promodaya Wickremasinghe claimed corrupt practices were underway during Sri Lanka’s ODI series loss to Zimbabwe in June-July 2017.
Immediately after, all of Sri Lanka’s contracted players wrote a letter to the SLC, calling for the board to probe the allegations.
The ICC initiated its probe into the matter a day later.
Recently SLC Chief Ashley de Silva, speaking to reporters stated the ICC anti-corruption investigators visited the island in September to conduct a wide-ranging inquiry and indicated that the ICC had cleared them after their investigation.
