Ready to fix any format of the game on India TV's demand.





He is a Premier panel umpire of Sri Lanka. He is a regular Fourth Umpire in Test matches and ODI's against all countries.

He officiated in 3 Test matches as reserve Umpire against England, India and New Zealand. Gamini also officiated in ICC under 19 World cup in 2006.

He revealed about the height of corruption prevalent in the Sri Lanka Cricket board. He told us that ‘if you serve them liquor and takes them to picnic you will get assignments from the Sri Lankan officials'.

He agreed on favouring our players in any format of the game.

Gamini also revealed that there are reports of match fixing in SLPL and in Sri Lankan cricket.

During the conversation, Gamini said that if we pay him good money, he will revolt against the Sri Lankan cricket and will officiate matches in any rebel league which is not being affiliated by ICC or any cricketing board.

His name was suggested to India TV by Maurice Winston Dela Zilwa.
