The police are investigating a possible deal that took place between a ground employee and an Indian before the Test match between Sri Lanka and Australia in Galle Cricket Ground.
The ground employee had given the pitch report to the Indian who is believed to be a Bookie owner or a match fixer. A famous figure in gambling business is also behind this deal. The business man is still in the gambling business on a large scale with whom former Captain Arjuna Ranathunga had some continual issues related to cricket matches.
Even though the police are investigating the matter, it seems to be a difficult task since this business man is too smart to hide the evidence.
