Sri Lanka Cricket is investigating*, in coordination with the ICC, a case of alleged corruption in the country that revolves around a taped conversation. An SLC statement issued on Sunday said it had received a recording of the conversation on August 9 and then passed the tape on to the ICC's Anti Corruption and Security Unit (ACSU), currently in the country for the SLPL.

The statement said a copy of the tape had also been given to a Sri Lankan newspaper; however, no local media outlets have as yet reported on any corruption allegations.

"We are unable to give any additional information other than what has been released to the media," SLC CEO Ajit Jayasekara said.

The anti-corruption measures for the SLPL are identical to those implemented for international matches. Two members of the anti-corruption unit will be in Sri Lanka for the duration of the tournament. They are the same officers who oversaw Sri Lanka's ODI series against India and the Pakistan tour in June.
