SLC claims ignorance, says no knowledge of fixingColombo: Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) on Saturday denied any knowledge of its player being accused of match fixing in the ongoing Indian Premier League.

"No we are not aware of such an occurrence. If it had happened the BCCI would have informed us," the SLC secretary, Nishantha Ranatunga said expressing surprise at the accusation.

Ranatunga said the governing body would definitely investigate the matter if informed by the BCCI.

According to reports, a bookie named Sonu Yogendra alias Malad has told the crime branch in Mumbai that he paid Rs 10 crore to a Sri Lankan player for fixing a match.

The details of the player and the game were, however, not mentioned.

The Mumbai crime branch on Thursday raided a building and busted a major cricket betting racket. They also seized some equipment and cash from the place.

The gang was accepting bets on IPL games, the police claimed.
