England recall Ali, Curran with Buttler set to keep Colombo – Sri Lankan cricket’s anti-corruption unit detained two Indian spectators on suspicion of match-fixing during a domestic Twenty20 league game, officials said on Wednesday. The men were apprehended after officials spotted them behaving suspiciously and making repeated calls on their mobile phones during the match between Galle and Dambulla at Pallekele, in the island’s central hills. The arrest comes a day after SLC issued a new match-fixing alert after a group of spectators were asked to leave another venue after officials suspected them of involvement in attempted match-fixing. The ongoing T20 tournament features solely Sri Lankan cricketers after plans to emulate the massively lucrative Indian Premier League and attract foreign stars to Sri Lanka fell through. Authorities say the scaled-down competition is still attracting match-fixers, and have increased the deployment of officials at games and team hotels, while players have been warned to inform the authorities of any attempt to approach them to fix matches. Sri Lanka has also announced plans for tougher laws against sports corruption and a special police unit to deal with match-fixing following an Al-Jazeera documentary exposing corruption in global cricket in which three Sri Lanka officials were filmed agreeing to sway matches.

Joe Denly, also pushing for a Test debut at the top of the order, scored 25 batting at number three.

Sep 17, , Opting to bat after winning the toss, Afghanistan were off to a cautious start with the openers Mohammad Shahzad 34 and Ihsanullah Janat 45 putting on 57 runs in just under 12 overs. Spinner Akila Dhananjaya made the first breakthrough when he had Shahzad trapped in front of the wicket. It was a loose shot and attempting to reverse sweep a length ball proved to be his undoing.
There was another half-century stand, between Ihsanullah and Shah, as the Afghanistan dressing room looked relaxed at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium. However, Sri Lanka found another wicket after the two batsmen added exactly 50 runs for the second wicket.

Leach does his best to reassure us — and perhaps himself. In fact the veteran left-armer, who is making his last Test appearance at Galle, is an excellent choice for Leach. Neither Herath nor Leach epitomise the 21st century cricketer, who is often a superb athlete, bulging with biceps.

Although rain dominated the first couple of days in the match, a good contest between bat and ball ensued later on.

The right handed batsman has made 14 first class appearances, with a top score of not out for Kandy against Galle in April thus year. He was called up by the Sri Lanka Board for an invitational XI to play a warm-up in Colombo against England, ahead of the three match Test series starting next month. Nissanka, 20, was treated for 15 minutes as hush descended over the smattering of mainly English fans at this quaint Colombo venue and then carried off on a stretcher and taken to hospital as the umpires called an early tea.
Thankfully he was conscious as he left the field and was treated for a neck injury caused by the impact of the ball on his helmet. It turned into an eventful day for England, with Ben Stokes suffering a minor injury scare himself and Jonny Bairstow taking the first steps towards recovery from his own ankle problem by having a keeping net with coach Bruce French. The all-rounder, who has suffered a number of minor injury problems since missing the whole of the Ashes through suspension, had treatment for what turned out to be bruising and was able to resume his innings after tea.
Root will definitely bat at four in the first Test in Galle next Tuesday but the identity of the batsmen above him remains uncertain following an unconvincing display from Joe Denly in the problem No 3 slot. It is no exaggeration to say Denly, the surprise pick for this tour at the age of 32, could have been dismissed by each of his first six balls before settling to make 25 until being yorked by Kumara just after lunch. Denly was also culpable in the dismissal of Rory Burns, who looked both confident and classy in moving to 47 in his first senior innings for England before a mix up led to him being run out by a direct hit attempting a tight single.
