ICC investigation most welcome

The news that the International Cricket Council has begun an investigation into allegations of corruption in Sri Lankan Cricket is shocking.

For weeks there have been various rumours floating around as Sri Lanka barely managed to tie with Bangladesh, lost an ODI series to the lower-ranked Zimbabweans and went down with barely a whimper to the rampaging Indians nine games to nothing.

Eventually there came the allegation of pitch-tampering made by Lasith Malinga and the very public comments made by Pramodya Wickramasinghe that he suspected there was foul play during the fourth One-Day game against Zimbabwe.

The national players – all forty of them – signed a letter asking for an investigation.

ICC's General Manager – ACU, Alex Marshall, was quoted as saying that "the ICC Anti-Corruption Unit works to uphold integrity in cricket and this includes conducting investigations where there are reasonable grounds to do so. There is currently an ICC (ACU) investigation underway in Sri Lanka. Naturally as part of this we are talking to a number of people."

This is terrible because our cricketers are our heroes, our proud Lions whom we have revered and adored.

Fans who were very disappointed with the results of the past few months and were clamouring for changes at the top should now wait and see for the ICC sleuths to find the truth.

They should now console themselves that finally something is being done.
