Hashan Tillakaratne will tell the ICC about the match fixing allegation

It seems that former Sri Lanka captain, Hashan Tillakaratne, is going to take a courageous work as he has already said in front of the media that he will tell the ICC that matches were fixed during his career.

It was the first time he made his appearance in front of the media since breaking his accusations on TV. Despite knowing the life threat, he would reveal those names that were involved in match fixing at a later date. He is ready to submit the evidence to the ICC.

It also created a question that why he took long time to open his mouth about the match fixing. In reply, he said, “for my security”. It creates a lot of question. Is his life safe to talk about the match fixing now? Is his evidences are strong enough to prove the allegation? No doubt, it has been so long for considering the match fixing allegation that happened during his time.

Not only he talks about the match fixing allegation but also points out several matters that have caused controversy in recent times. His points are related about the squad for the ICC World Cup and IPL tournament.

Let’s see if it either helps ICC and Sri Lanka Cricket Board or not.
