Chennai: Reacting to former Sri Lanka captain Hashan Tillakaratne's comments that match fixing has existed in Sri Lankan cricket since 1992, Kumar Sangakkara on Sunday said the former should work with the ACSU unit of the ICC and the home authorities in Sri Lanka if he has "anything more than allegations, as it's dangerous to throw names around."
Speaking in the post-match media conference after his side's 19 run loss to Chennai Super Kings, the Deccan Chargers captain said,"Hashan made those comments in a TV show. It was then taken up by the press. Hashan has played the game for years and he's captained Sri Lanka as well. So it's interesting to see what he has to say and if he has anything more than allegations."
"It's dangerous to throw names around, he should work very closely with the ACSU of the ICC and the home authorities to ensure that something's done about it if there is any foundation to those claims but beyond that I don't think it makes any big sense to the players playing now."
