Sri Lanka fast bowler and T20 captain Lasith Malinga has questioned the logic behind the ICC’s decision to provide an amnesty for players to report previously undisclosed information about corruption.
The ICC said in a statement that it has given Sri Lanka’s cricketers a 15-day amnesty which runs from January 16 to 31 to report anything they know about corruption.
The amnesty comes after a series of prominent Sri Lankan administrators and players, including Sanath Jayasuria and Nuwan Zoysa were caught up in a number of cases relating to corruption.

Normally if a player fails to report corruption, they face a ban of up to five years, but this amnesty will allow them to do so without threat of punishment.
Malinga, however, has argued that those who fail to report corruption should not be let off the hook.
"I don’t know why they are giving that opportunity if they catch people they should punish them straight away – otherwise people have a guilty mind and cricket is going nowhere," he said.
He also confirmed that the Sri Lankan team had not yet sat down to discuss the ICC’s statement.
