I HAVE MADE MY PHONE NUMBER AVAILABLE TO THE ICC: HASHAN THILAKARATHNE
June 07, 2011 : United National Party (UNP) Provincial Councilor and former Test Cricket captain Hashan Thilakarathne says that he is the complainant and not the respondent in the match fixing scandal.
Thilakarathne made this observation while addressing the Western Provincial Council which convened today (07).
“I was called by the CID twice and I gave my fullest support to them on both instances. However, I must reiterate to the house that I am the complainant and not the respondent in this matter.”
“I have also made my phone number available to the officials of the ICC to contact me in this regard whenever necessary. Sri Lanka Cricket meanwhile, has also given me the telephone numbers of relevant institutions concerning this subject to contact of necessary.”
“The discussions that were held under the patronage of the President regarding the statement that I had made in this house, was attended by my wife Apsara Thilakarathne and Ven. Uduwe Dhammaloka thera. I would like to reiterate at this instance, that during this discussion I did not mention the names of any player or individual connected to match fixing,” noted Thilakarathne.

Well Mr Thilakarathne,
Can we say, ‘this is a storm in the Tea Cup!’
It appears Mr Tillekerathne has now been fixed following his visit to the Temple Trees.
Well, if you cant beat them, join them.
Soon Mr Tillekerathne will be wearing a blue shirt and be the CM, WP.
my wife Apsara Thilakarathne :?#!!?? Pahugiya dawas wala mokakda kalabalayak ehema thibuna needa?
I wonder why HT could not come up with these allegations earlier. Why did he wait all these years to expose something which we have all along suspected? It is supposed to be a billion dollar plus industry. Is he hoping to get some baksheesh to keep his big mouth shut? Maybe someone will shut it permanently. Is he looking for some political mileage out of this? He is tantalising and teasing the nation with tit bits but never a list of names. He can surely expose it all in the Parliament and be safe from lawsuits under the parliamentary privileges. Maybe he is hoping to get SF released by the President for keeping mum. Only time will tell.
Nico… It’s not a wonder some one becomes a gossip monger or false rumourer after being Politikka…!
