Amidst allegations of misconduct by Sri Lankan cricketers during the New Zealand tour, and impending probe by the Sports Ministry, Skipper Angelo Mathews has said that he was unaware of such incidents.
Speaking to reporters at a media briefing held in Colombo soon after the team’s arrival, Mathews said that according to his knowledge, there were no ‘major’ incidents of player misconduct.
Mathews pointed out that if such incidents had taken place, the team management would have taken prompt action without waiting for the series to be over.
Team Manager, Jeryl Woutersz meanwhile told reporters that that he had been asked to submit a report to Sports Minister Dayasiri Jayasekera over the allegations.
Jayasekera yesterday claimed that he was in possession of photographic evidence to suggest that players had indulged in late night partying just before the matches.
