Navishta Desilva, an aspiring cricket promoter, has avoided jail time after committing fraud to raise funds for a cricket series. Desilva stole over $240,000 from his former employer, Omnivision, to pay for high-profile international cricketers. He pleaded guilty to the charges and has since repaid the stolen money. The judge found Desilva remorseful and sentenced him to a three-year community corrections order with 200 hours of unpaid work. Desilva felt pressured to raise the money due to the expectations placed on him. He used some of the stolen money for personal expenses like luxury holidays and designer clothing.
