SLC officials to resign over ‘fixed’ match

The involvement of several SLC officials in a controversial First Class cricket match embroiled with match fixing issues have raised eyebrows, reports say.

The match in question was played between the Panadura Sports Club and Kalutara Physical Cultural Club.

It is said that the match was fixed in such a shrewd manner that it enabled the Panadura Sports Club to win without causing the Kalutara Physical Cultural Club to be demoted within the tournament.

It is said that several others in prominent posts at the SLC are to resign if the officials found to be guilty are not punished.
