Sachithra Senanayake, a former Sri Lanka and KKR cricketer, has been detained on suspicion of match-fixing


When he surrendered this morning, he was arrested by the Sports Corruption Investigation Unit. He was barred from flying abroad three weeks ago.

Sachithra Senanayake, a former Sri Lanka cricketer, was arrested on Wednesday for fixing allegations.

Senanayake was accused of attempting to manipulate games in the Lanka Premier League (LPL) for the 2020 season, and of enticing two players to do so.

Between 2012 and 2016, the 38-year-old played a single Test, 49 ODIs, and 24 T20 internationals. In addition, he appeared in eight IPL 2023 matches for the Kolkata Knight Riders.

The Colombo Chief Magistrate’s Court ordered the Controller General of Immigration and Emigration to impose a three-month travel ban.

The Attorney General’s Department was informed today by the Sports Ministry’s Special Investigation Unit to prepare criminal charges against the former off-spinner.
