Latif backs Tillakaratne's 'match-fixing charge against Lankans since 1992' claims

Karachi , Mon, 02 May 2011 ANI

Karachi, May 2(ANI): Former Pakistan captain Rashid Latif has backed Hashan Tillakaratne after former Sri Lankan skipper came under fire for claiming that Sri Lanka has been involved in match-fixing for almost two decades.


Latif, who was a whistleblower in the match-fixing scandal involving Pakistan in the 90s, said that Tillakaratne knows a lot about the world of match-fixing, adding that he was hoping that a lot of big names would be exposed when he would speak his heart out.


"I know him personally, he told me about this (match-fixing) in the 1993-94 as well. Nobody knows the subcontinent players better than him and if he reveals the facts then a lot of former cricketers from India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka would be exposed," the Daily Times quoted Latif, as saying.


"As far as I know Hashan would honour his commitment and it would be extremely damaging for some ex-players of the subcontinent," he added.


Tillakaratne, who played 83 Tests and 200 ODIs for Sri Lanka during his 15-year career, had said that he was prepared to back up his allegations by naming some of those involved.


"Match fixing is something which has been in this country over a period of time. This has spread like a cancer today. According to my knowledge, it happened since 1992," Tillakaratne had said. (ANI)
