The Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) Wednesday dismissed several media reports, saying that no cricketer of the national team was caught in a sex scandal during the first test against England at Galle.
Earlier today, several local media groups carried the news saying a young Sri Lanka cricketer, who played in the recently concluded Galle Test against England that ended on Monday (18), was caught involved in a sex scandal.
“No such incident was reported during the match. These all are fabricated stories to disturb the ongoing test series” a top SLC official told Cricket Age.
Sri Lanka were comprehensively defeated in the first test, as a spirited England continued their dominant against the host nation. Now, Sri Lanka has lost five test matches against England on their home soil.
In addition, chairman of the selector of the national team Ashantha De Mel persistent with non performers and ignorance towards consistent domestic performers like Roshan Silva, Pathum Nissanka have been heavily criticized by cricket fans and experts alike.
“When team lose, people finds ways to criticize. Yes, there was a minor case of violating the dressing room code of conduct. But, this sex scandal accusation is baseless” the top SLC official added further.
