A Mumbai-based bookmaker allegedly struck a deal with Perera

Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) have defended all-rounder Thisara Perera, stating that he was not involved in any form of spot-fixing during this year’s Indian Premier League (IPL).

SLC’s comments come after a media report stated that a Mumbai-based bookmaker fixed an IPL match for Rs 6 crore after striking deals with four Sunrisers Hyderabad players.

The bookmaker revealed that he had struck deals with Thisara Perera, Hanuma Vihari, Karan Sharma and Ashish Reddy.

While SLC are still waiting to receive more information from the Indian authorities, they added that they have “full confidence in all its players.”
