Sachithra Senanayake’s anticipatory bail application rejected

A bail application filed by former national Cricketers Sachithra Senanayake seeking an order to prevent his arrest was rejected on March 2 by the Colombo Magistrate’s Court.

Senanayake allegedly attempted to fix matches in the 2020 Lanka Premier League (LPL) T20 tournament which was held last year.

The complaint is being probed by the ICC’s Anti-Corruption Unit (ACU as well as Sri Lanka Cricket’s anti-corruption unit.
