Ranatunga, now a government minister, alleged that unusual changes were made to the team before the final which Sri Lanka lost by six wickets. Similar allegations of "unnatural match patterns" and queries over player selection were made by Wickremasinghe. The ICC announced the probe a day after SLC said that 40 contracted national team players had asked for an immediate inquiry into "shocking" allegations by Wickremasinghe. Sri Lanka cricket board president Thilanga Sumathipala said it was "very unfair" for such allegations to be made without any evidence, adding the ICC had found no proof of foul play.
“They do not put out statements after an inquiry, but if there is anything adverse, they would inform us. To date, they have not told us of anything (against Sri Lankan players or officials).” https://t.co/e1L5FV8CiCJanuary 9, 2018
