England will play the first of three tests against Sri Lanka at Galle International Cricket Stadium in November

Sri Lanka Cricket has said it will give its “fullest cooperation” to any investigation into match-fixing.

An Al Jazeera documentary is believed to allege groundsmen in Galle are being bribed to alter pitches for test matches involving teams such as Australia and England.

The International Cricket Council (ICC) has already launched an investigation.

The England & Wales Cricket Board (ECB) said it is aware of the documentary and will also support the ICC.

“Sri Lanka Cricket wishes to state that it has zero tolerance towards corruption and will take immediate action against any person involved in the alleged incident, if found guilty,” it said in a statement.
