Colombo (Sri Lanka) — On November 24, a Sri Lankan Member of Parliament, Nalin Bandara, made sweeping claims against the national cricket team, claiming that the Test match between Sri Lanka and Pakistan in July had been called off.In relation to the first Test of Pakistan's red-ball tour of Sri Lanka in July, he labelled the Sri Lankan cricket board as a gambling den.Pakistan defeated a seemingly impossible target of 342 in the fourth innings on a turning pitch, going 1-0 up in the series.Our team scored 400-odd in the last Pakistan series, a record that would be exceeded by Sri Lanka, and they still lost in the last innings, according to Bandara.

However, Bandara hasn't provided enough proof to back up his allegations against Sri Lankan cricket.He referred to player mismanagement by the board and his fight with Shammi Silva, the president of Sri Lankan cricket, in this regard.Anti-Corruption Unit hasn't released a statement on this matter.
