Match-fixing is considered the biggest crime in any sport. Due to fixing, the good career of many strong players has been ruined. Numerous cases of match-fixing have been heard in international cricket as well as in league cricket. Now a player who has played for CSK has been indicted of match-fixing.
Allegations of match-fixing on this Player:
The Chief Magistrate Court in Colombo has banned former Sri Lankan cricketer Sachitra Senanayake from traveling abroad following the opening of a disquisition into him for match-fixing. This player was included in the CSK squad in IPL and has also played for KKR. Senanayake’s troubles seem to be increasing.
Played every format for Sri Lanka:
Senanayake, who played one Test, 49 ODIs, and 24 T20 Internationals between 2012 and 2016, has been criminated of trying to fix matches during the 2020 Lanka Premier League( LPL). The matter is under disquisition and the court has banned Sachitra from traveling abroad for three months. The court barred Senanayake from leaving the country for three months following the Attorney General’s( AG) directions to the Sports Ministry’s Special Investigation Unit( SIU) to press lawless charges against the former off-spinner.
Several pieces of evidence were found against the player:
The AG has ruled that sufficient material has been set up under the Prevention of Offenses relating to the Sports ActNo. 24 of 2019. The directive to frame felonious charges comes after several rounds of conversations between the International Cricket Council( ICC) general director, Anti-Corruption Unit( ACU), Alex Marshall, Sri Lankan cricket officers, and the attorney general. It is alleged that Senanayake contacted two cricketers via telephone from Dubai to fix matches in the first season of the Lanka Premier League in 2020. Senanayake’s case will be the first since corruption in sports was made a punishable felonious offense in Sri Lanka under the Prevention of Offenses Related to Sports Act in 2019.
