India assures cooperation in probe of corruption cases within Sri Lankan cricket

This was stated by former Sri Lankan minister and former cricket captain Arjun Ranatunga while addressing a press conference in Colombo on Monday.

Ranatunga, who accompanied Sri Lankan Prime minister on his India visit last week, had discussions with finance minister Arun Jaitley and former BCCI President Anurag Thakur in this regard.

The minister said that India will also assist Sri Lankan cricket board in framing a legislation to fight corruption and fixing charges.

His statement came as Sri Lankan cricket is under probe for corruption charges and former skipper Sanath Jayasurya was given a charge sheet by ICC for not cooperating in a corruption investigation.

Sri Lanka has suffered several defeats at home and abroad which has put the board and selection team under scanner.

Sri Lankan cricket board is also to hold elections to choose new members and the minister called upon the need for adopting a new constitution.
