Sri Lanka Cricket's rebuttal comes in the wake of a media report which stated that a Mumbai-based bookie fixed an IPL match for Rs 6 crore after striking deals with four players of Sunrisers Hyderabad.

Colombo:

Sri Lanka Cricket on Monday denied reports that all-rounder Thisara Perera indulged in match-fixing during this year's Indian Premier League, saying that it has full faith in its players.

SLC's rebuttal comes in the wake of a media report which stated that a Mumbai-based bookie fixed an IPL match for Rs 6 crore after striking deals with four players of Sunrisers Hyderabad.

The players mentioned in the report were Thisara Perera, Hanuma Vihari, Karan Sharma and Ashish Reddy. The report quoted a bookie, who apparently took the players' names in his statement to the Mumbai police crime branch.

SLC, while denying that no intimation on the incident has been given to them by the Indian authorities, said it had "the full confidence in all its players."

Perera is currently playing in the Champions League Twenty20 representing the Sunrisers.
