May 25, Colombo: Sri Lanka Minister of Sports Mahindananda Aluthgamage asked from the opposition today to help him to find former Sri Lanka cricket captain Hashan Tillakaratne to inquire about the match fixing charges he revealed that he had evidence to prove.
Addressing the adjournment debate on the corruption in Sri Lanka Cricket at the parliament today, the Minister stated that the ICC officials also had tried to contact Tillakaratne to obtain further information but failed.
The Minister said that the contact numbers of Tillakaratne have become unresponsive and urged the opposition to help the government to find whereabouts of the ex-cricketer who has become a key figure in the major opposition United National Party (UNP).
Tillakaratne last month said that he had names and evidence to prove match fixing that had taken place in cricket for almost two decades.
He told the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) when requested to make a statement that he would reveal the names if he is provided with security as his life was in danger.
