Sachitra Senanayake had a long inquiry on LPL fixing allegations
Former Sri Lankan off-spinner Sachitra Senanayake was inquired for more than 8 hours regarding the LPL match-fixing allegations.
Former Sri Lankan off-spinner Sachitra Senanayake is the latest suspect of match-fixing allegations. Last year, Sri Lanka Cricket launched their new T20 league called Lanka Premier League. Unfortunately in the augural edition itself, ICC probed that there are match-fixing allegations around the league.
As a part of those allegations, former Sri Lankan off-spinner Sachitra Senanayake is alleged for a fixing attempt. According to the allegations, the former national cricketer approached two cricketers participating in the LPL 2020, via phone calls from Dubai, in the United Arab Emirates.
Soon after the complaints, investigations have been started. As a part of the investigations, the former cricketer was summoned for an inquiry by Sri Lankan Police on March 3rd. The cricketer was enquired for more than 8 hours by the police and it is said that he is asked to be present on the next day too.
Earlier, Sachitra applied for anticipatory bail preventing his arrest over allegations relating to match-fixing. However, Colombo Magistrate’s Court rejected the bail and summoned him to appear in front of the police for inquiry.
