Certain media discredited players - Angelo
He thanks sports minister Dayasiri Jayasekara, Sri Lanka Cricket and the FCID for their attempts to keep the game clean. Angelo was speaking to BBC Sandeshaya after giving a statement to the FCID today (19). He made it clear the probe was not against cricketers, and that it was one that looks into attempts at intimidating them. He said he was not aware of the SLC’s decision to suspend a coach. Angelo was questioned for 4 ½ hours over an attempt to lure Kusal Janith Perera and Rangana Herath to lose a match during the West Indies series. Team manager Jeryl Woutersz too, was questioned yesterday with regard to the incident, on a complaint by the sports minister.
