"The cricketers in a petition signed by all including both captain Dinesh Chandimal and Upul Tharanga to Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) have drawn attention to what they say was shockingly disparaging and hurtful statements by Wickremesinghe to a private television channel that tend to give the general public a suspicious impression about them," a SLC release said.

Wickremesinghe, a member of the 1996 World Cup winning team and also a former selector, had said that certain members of the Sri Lankan team had fixed games for money.

The players, who signed the petition, have challenged Wickremesinghe to prove his allegations.
