    Corruption in Sri Lanka cricket

    Sanath Jayasuriya, charged with two counts of breaching the ICC Anti-Corruption Code, has been given 14 days from 15 October 2018 to respond.

    The International Cricket Council (ICC) has charged Sanath Jayasuriya with two counts of breaching the ICC Anti-Corruption Code. Mr Jayasuriya, the former Sri Lanka Cricket Chair of Selectors, has been charged with the following offences under the Code:

    Article 2.4.6 – Failure or refusal, without compelling justification, to cooperate with any investigation carried out by the ACU, including failure to provide accurately and completely any information and/or documentation requested by the ACU as part of such investigation.

    Article 2.4.7 – Obstructing or delaying any investigation that may be carried out by the ACU, including concealing, tampering with or destroying any documentation or other information that may be relevant to that investigation and/or that may be evidence or may lead to the discovery of evidence of corrupt conduct under the Anti-Corruption Code.

    Mr Jayasuriya has 14 days from 15 October 2018 to respond to the charges. The ICC will not make any further comment in respect of these charges at this stage.

    Jayasuriya did not help his legacy by prolonging his career forcefully to his mid 40's where even the senior players like Sangakarra and Jaywardene were unhappy with the selectors for refusing to drop him.

    Then when he was chief selector, he wasn't liked by the players and he has always been accused of living a very flashy lifestyle

    Jayasuriya was a star of the Sri Lanka team that won the Cricket World Cup in 1996 during a playing career that spanned 22 years and took in 110 tests and 445 one-day internationals. He later served in the Sri Lankan parliament from 2010-15, and became the national team's chairman of selectors.

    His reputation could be tarnished though after the International Cricket Council (ICC) said the 49-year-old had been charged with offences relating to the "failure or refusal" to cooperate with an anti-corruption investigation.

    He was also charged with "obstructing or delaying" an investigation and has 14 days to respond to them.

    The Daily Mail reported that Jayasuriya lied about the number of phones in his possession, before hiding one of his SIM cards and disposing of the handset.

    The Telegraph believed the charges related to the fourth one-day international between Sri Lanka and Zimbabwe in Hambantota in July 2017 when Jayasuriya was chairman of selectors. Zimbabwe beat Sri Lanka 3-2, their first major series win since 2001. The following month, Jayasuriya stepped down as chairman of selectors.

    The ICC recently said Alex Marshall, general manager of the anti-corruption unit, was overseeing a probe into potential corrupt practices over "serious allegations" in Sri Lanka.

    The ICC said the first charge against Jayasuriya included the "failure to provide accurately and completely any information and/or documentation requested" by the anti-corruption unit.

    The second charge included the "concealing, tampering with or destroying any documentation or other information that may be relevant to that investigation and/or that may be evidence or may lead to the discovery of evidence of corrupt conduct" under the anti-corruption code.

    Jayasuriya, who was Sri Lanka captain from 1999-2003, amassed 6973 runs at an average of just over 40 in tests. That puts him behind only Kumar Sangakkara and Mahela Jayawardene in his country's all-time list.

    He scored 13,430 runs in ODIs - a total bettered only by Sangakkara, India's Sachin Tendulkar and Australia's Ricky Ponting - and was well known for his big hitting at the top of the order.

    Jayasuriya played international cricket from 1989-2011.

    It’s like convicting a dead man for a crime he wasn’t punished for

    Surely there will be some kind of punishment.

    Most former cricketers earn their living by coaching, commentating, officiating or working as a selector. This includes in ICC or local board approved tournaments. Losing that ability can cost him.

    Have you thought that this could relate to current and ongoing cricket, despite the fact that he is not playing.

    I understand, it is the current existing players who should be worried, not so much Jayasuriya who is retired now, don't see how a life ban can hurt him.

    He and others could still 'lose' a lot from this episode if they are found guilty.

    The Sri Lankan’s have either been very lucky or very very clean because they’ve always dodged the match fixing claims unlike their Asian neighbours where many international cricketers have been caught and convicted.

    For example whatever happened to this?

    Former Sri Lanka captain Hashan Tillakaratne has vowed to reveal full details of match-fixing that he alleges took place during his career.

    Tillakaratne and ex-team-mate Arjuna Ranatunga claim fixing has been common in Sri Lankan cricket since 1992.

    Sanath Jayasuriya charged by ICC with breaching anti-corruption code

    Sri Lanka's former chair of selectors Sanath Jayasuriya has been charged by the International Cricket Council (ICC) with two breaches of its anti-corruption code.
    Jayasuriya, who captained Sri Lanka as a player and appeared in 110 Tests, is accused of two offences which relate to an anti-corruption unit investigation.

    Article 2.4.6 relates to the "failure or refusal, without compelling justification, to cooperate with any investigation carried out", while Article 2.4.7 involves "obstructing or delaying any investigation that may be carried out".

    Jayasuriya has 14 days from October 15 to respond to the ICC's charges.
    There are scarce details around of the nature of the charges and the ICC have said they will not be making any further comment on the matter.
    Jayasuriya played 110 Tests over a 16-year international career, averaging 40.

    He also played more than 450 limited overs matches for Sri Lanka before retiring from all forms of cricket in 2011.
    The 49-year-old has served two stints as the chairman of selectors for Sri Lanka, first taking the post in 2013.

    Nasser Hussain believes Sanath Jayasuriya's charge of two counts of breaching the Anti-Corruption Code by the International Cricket Council (ICC) is "just the tip of the iceberg".

    The former captain and opening batsman is accused of refusing to cooperate with any investigation conducted by the ICC's anti-corruption unit, the ICC said in a statement.

    Jayasuriya played 110 Tests, 445 one-day internationals and 31 Twenty20s for Sri Lanka during his illustrious career between 1989-2011.

    England are currently in Sri Lanka competing in a five-match ODI series and Hussain emphasised the enormity of a player of Jayasuriya's stature being charged.

    "There are other names that are going to come out," Hussain told Sky Sports. "This is going to be just the tip of the iceberg.

    "It is a huge story, he is one of the iconic figures - if not only Sri Lanka cricket but also world cricket. A former captain, a great player of world cricket, former chairman of selectors.

    "In a funny sort of way I am pleased it has come out because there have been so many rumours.

    "I've been in commentary boxes with Sri Lankan and ex-Sri Lankan players and there are so many rumours about big names coming out."

    Battling corruption has remained a high priority for the ICC after one of the most high-profile cases saw Salman Butt, Mohammad Asif and Mohammad Amir found guilty of conspiring to fix parts of the 2010 Lord's Test against England.

    Hussain praised the ICC over their swift decision to charge Jayasuriya, adding that spectators needed to be able to watch cricket without questioning what they are witnessing.

    "One thing the ICC have been charged with in the past is they don't worry with the big names and they'll go after the small names," he said. "In this case there are not many bigger names, especially in this part of the world, than Sanath.

    "This is not a great moment for world cricket because the rumours going around six months ago was that [corruption] had moved away from international cricket.

    "The virus had been cut out and it had moved to T20 leagues, the franchises, the obscure leagues.

    "The fact that they are going after Sanath Jayasuriya making sure he provides evidence tends to suggest there is something still out there that hasn't come out.

    "Things happen in sport that are absolutely unbelievable and you can't have people in the crowd and at home watching and thinking 'maybe he made a few quid for that'."

    Sanath Jayasuriya: Ex-Sri Lanka captain responds to corruption charges

    Ex-Sri Lanka captain Sanath Jayasuriya says he has acted with "integrity" after being charged with corruption.

    The International Cricket Council (ICC) charged Jayasuriya on Monday with two breaches of its anti-corruption code.

    He is accused of failing to co-operate with an investigation and "concealing, tampering with or destroying evidence".

    Jayasuriya says the charges "do not contain allegations pertaining to match fixing, pitch fixing or any other similar corrupt activity".

    The 49-year-old has 14 days to respond to charges.

    "The charges allege that I have not been cooperative and not assisted their investigations," Jayasuriya added in a statement.

    "I have always conducted myself with integrity and transparency with matters concerning the sport and I will continue to do so."

    According to the BBC Sinhala service, the charges by cricket's governing body against Jayasuriya pertained to him refusing to hand over his mobile phone to ICC authorities for "personal reasons".

    Earlier this month, Alex Marshall, general manager of the ICC anti-corruption unit, announced an investigation into "serious allegations of corruption" in Sri Lanka.

    BBC Sinhala understands Jayasuriya was chairman of selectors during the period under investigation.

    Jayasuriya was player of the tournament as Sri Lanka won the World Cup in 1996 and he scored 21 centuries and took 323 wickets in 445 one-day internationals. He also averaged 40.07 runs in 110 Test matches.

    The former government minister retired from international cricket in 2011, but continued playing Twenty20 matches until 2012.

    Most cricketers outside Aus, Eng and Ind are very poor as sportsmen in general, so corruption is a good way to make money after retiring. Most cricketers are not educated enough to pursue a different career.

    Jayasuriya has been charged by the ICC with two breaches of its anti-corruption code, with the former opening batsman accused of failing to co-operate with an investigation and "concealing, tampering with or destroying evidence".

    Jayawardene feels Sri Lanka have gone "backwards" on the field and are now "right at the bottom", having lost 32 of their last 42 completed ODIs and slipped to eighth in the ICC rankings.

    Speaking exclusively to Sky Sports Cricket's Ian Ward and Nasser Hussain, Jayawardene said: "What you have to realise is that it has not gone into the fixing allegation yet - it is just not co-operating.

    "So we just need to wait and see where this is heading. You have to give the benefit of the doubt but at the same time it is disappointing.

    Sanath Jayasuriya says he always conducts himself 'with integrity and transparency'
    Sanath Jayasuriya says he always conducts himself 'with integrity and transparency'
    "You had these guys who were trusted to do a job and to not be able to deliver for your country is a huge disappointment.

    "If you don't get this right, if there are any of those things happening in that dressing room or around it, you need to clean it up completely. That should be the starting point.

    "Forget about the cricket you play out in the middle. There is no trust in that dressing room if those things are happening. I think the coaching staff and the management are important as well - try to sweep it out.

    "It should happen quickly as well. It shouldn't take six to eight months because that is going to directly impact how the Sri Lankan team is going to perform out there because there are a lot of young players, not many senior heads who have played 10 or 15 years.

    "You need to start at some point and I think, rightly or wrongly, for these things to come out is a good thing for Sri Lanka - I don't think it's a distraction. It's a positive thing.

    Sri Lanka must win Saturday's ODI against England in Kandy to keep the series alive

    "If that's the reason the performance is getting affected, or there's no unity in the dressing room or there isn't the culture there was before, then try to sort that out so we can start planning going forward."

    Jayawardene, who scored 25,957 runs for Sri Lanka across all three formats, is hopeful his nation's fortunes will improve, citing England's white-ball revolution as an inspiration.

    England were dumped out of the 2015 World Cup at the group stage after losing four of their six matches - including a nine-wicket thumping by Sri Lanka - but are now No 1 in the world and will secure a ninth series victory in a row if they win Saturday's ODI in Kandy.

    "We are going backwards from where we were and right now we are right at the bottom, which shows in our ranking," added Jayawardene.

    Sri Lanka seeks Indian help to tackle match-fixing

    India has offered to assist Sri Lanka with its inquiry into match-fixing in cricket and drafting laws to combat cheating in the game, a Sri Lankan cabinet minister said Monday.

    Sri Lanka’s Petroleum Minister Arjuna Ranatunga said India’s Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) could provide technical expertise in probing widespread allegations of corruption in cricket.

    “We don’t have the expertise or the laws to deal with this problem in a proper manner. India promised to help us in drafting legislation too,” Ranatunga said after returning from New Delhi.

    The CBI named Ranatunga and his deputy Aravinda de Silva in a match-fixing investigation in 2000 but the pair were cleared of any wrongdoing.

    Sri Lanka promised to establish a special police unit to investigate match-fixing after a documentary aired in May alleged massive global corruption in cricket.

    Galle groundsman Tharanga Indika and professional cricketer Tharindu Mendis allegedly speculated about fixing the pitch to ensure a result in under four days in the Test against England.

    Both men have been suspended by Sri Lanka Cricket pending an ICC investigation. A third man, provincial coach Jeevantha Kulatunga, was also suspended.

    Sanath Jayasuriya, a member of the 1996 World Cup winning squad, is under investigation by the International Cricket Council’s anti-corruption unit, along with several others.

    Jayasuriya has been charged for not cooperating with a match-fixing probe and concealing information.

    Sri Lankan cricket's finance chief arrested over suspect TV rights

    The chief financial officer of Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) has been arrested for suspected financial misappropriation linked with awarding telecast rights to Sony TV.

    The International Cricket Council said this month that its anti-corruption unit was investigating serious allegations in Sri Lankan cricket and had provided a detailed briefing to the country's president, prime minister and sports minister.


    "Following the investigation the CID arrested the main suspect. He is the chief financial officer of Sri Lanka Cricket," Police spokesman Ruwan Gunasekara said , naming him as 42-year old Wimal Nandika Dissanayake.

    Dissanayake's lawyers were not immediately available for comment.

    He was arrested after the SLC's chief executive lodged a complaint to the police over financial fraud, the police spokesman said.


    "The complaint says the SLC's television rights have been going to Sony since 2013. At the last South African tour, this main suspect asked Sony to deposit 15 per cent of the television rights fees to a private account in America."

    He said the amount of money misappropriated on South African tours was more than $US187,000 ($265,000).

    "Sony became suspicious when this suspect informed it (of the requirement) for a deposit of 50 per cent of television rights fees from an ongoing England tour and it informed Sri Lanka cricket."

    Sony could not immediately be reached for comment.

    The arrest came a week after former Sri Lanka captain and selector Sanath Jayasuriya was charged with two counts of breaching the ICC's anti-corruption code.

    An official at Sri Lanka Cricket said it had given all its support to the anti-corruption team in its investigation.

    Sri Lanka's 1996 World Cup-winning team captain Arjuna Ranatunga said he and Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe had sought India's expertise in dealing with the investigation because Indian police had a good record for probing match fixing and other corrupt practices bedeviling the sport.

    "We made this request because it is not only the players who are involved in this corruption," Ranatunga said.

    "There is a group behind the players like bookies and betting agents. If we get the group, we can find out the root cause of this problem."

    Sri Lanka has been rated as the most corrupt cricket nation by the world governing body, the country's sports minister said on Monday.

    The International Cricket Council feels "Sri Lanka's cricket administration is corrupt from top to bottom", Harin Fernando said, adding that he had been shown a confidential report on the matter at a Dubai meeting.

    A host of scandals have rocked Sri Lankan cricket in recent years including a match-fixing controversy revealed in a sting operation carried out for a TV documentary.

    The ICC anti-corruption unit has regularly investigated cases in the island nation.

    ARTICLE CONTINUES AFTER AD

    The crisis-ridden Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) is to hold delayed elections in February, which were due last May when the term of president Thilanga Sumathipala ended.

    Sumathipala has been accused of violating ICC rules by holding office despite alleged links to gambling. He denies the charges.

    "Unfortunately Sri Lanka is being ranked as one of the worst or the top worst country for cricket corruption," Fernando told reporters after returning from the meeting with ICC anti-corruption chief Alex Marshall.

    "They told me that the problem was not limited to bookies, but even the local game's links with the underworld," he said, adding that the corruption was more to do with cricket administration than players.

    Last month former Sri Lankan fast bowler Dilhara Lokuhettige was suspended for corruption during a limited over league in 2017.

    Lokuhettige was the third Sri Lankan player charged for violating the anti-corruption code following cases against former captain and ex-chief selector Sanath Jayasuriya and former paceman Nuwan Zoysa.

    Jayasuriya was charged for failing to cooperate with a match-fixing probe and concealing information. Zoysa was suspended over match-fixing accusations.

    The minister said the ICC would grant an amnesty to Sri Lankan players who disclose details of wrongdoing in the game.

    He added that the government wanted to prepare anti-match fixing legislation.

    ICC announces amnesty

    The International Cricket Council (ICC) today announced a 15-day amnesty to participants who have previously failed to report any information concerning corrupt conduct in Sri Lankan cricket. The amnesty, which will run from 16-31 January, will apply to all participants under both the ICC and Sri Lankan Cricket Anti-Corruption codes.

    Under these codes, both domestic and international participants are obliged to report, without delay, full details of any approaches, incident or information that they receive to engage in corrupt conduct. Failure to do so is a serious offence and can result in a ban from cricket of up to five years. However, under the amnesty, any information reported by a participant will not attract a charge for their failure to report previously.

    Alex Marshall, ICC General Manager – Anti-Corruption, said: “This is the first time the ICC has held an amnesty and it is in response to the very specific challenges we face in Sri Lanka. Allowing retrospective reporting of alleged approaches to engage in corrupt conduct will assist in our ongoing and wide-ranging investigations, as well as enabling us to continue to develop a comprehensive picture of the situation there.

    “If any player or participant has any information concerning corrupt conduct they should come forward and share it with us now without fear of any repercussions.

    “We would urge any participant with any information that may demonstrate corrupt conduct affecting cricket in Sri Lanka to come forward in the strictest of confidence.”

    Members of the Sri Lankan Cricket Team, now touring Australia and other national players back home have received an email from the authorities providing the photographs of the bookies.

    According to the highly placed sources in Sri Lanka, the ICC and the SLC have sent the photographs of bookies, who have been trying to corrupt the matches.

    “This email has been sent to the payers as a precautionary measure,” the source said yesterday. “The players have been told to keep a distance with them and they have also been reminded to inform the ICC immediately in the event of any approach is made by any of these bookies”, the source further added.

    Meanwhile, Alex Marshall, the ICC’S Anticorruption Head met the Sports Minister Harin Fernando in Colombo yesterday.

    Another official, Steve Richardson is already in Sri Lanka, waiting for the players to take the benefit of the 15-day amnesty scheme.

    Sanath Jayasuriya has been banned from all cricket for two years after admitting breaching two counts of the ICC Anti-Corruption Code.

    Mr Jayasuriya, the former Sri Lanka Cricket Chair of Selectors, admitted to being in breach of the following provisions of the Code:

    1. Article 2.4.6 – Failure or refusal, without compelling justification, to cooperate with any investigation carried out by the ACU, including failure to provide accurately and completely any information and/or documentation requested by the ACU as part of such investigation.

    2. Article 2.4.7 – Obstructing or delaying any investigation that may be carried out by the ACU, including concealing, tampering with or destroying any documentation or other information that may be relevant to that investigation and/or that may be evidence or may lead to the discovery of evidence of corrupt conduct under the Anti-Corruption Code.

    As a result of the admissions, he has accepted a sanction of a two-year period of ineligibility.

    Alex Marshall, ICC General Manager – ACU said: “This conviction under the Code demonstrates the importance of participants in cricket cooperating with investigations. Compelling participants to cooperate under the Code is a vital weapon in our efforts to rid our sport of corruptors. These rules are essential to maintain the integrity of our sport.

    The conviction of Mr Jayasuriya is the latest part of a much broader ICC ACU investigation into corruption in cricket in Sri Lanka. The ACU recently held an amnesty in relation to Sri Lankan Cricket resulting in eleven players and other participants coming forward with new information.

    Marshall added: “The amnesty has worked very well and has delivered significant new and important intelligence. This new information has assisted a number of our ongoing investigations and has resulted in some new investigations getting underway.

    “I am very grateful to those who participated in the amnesty and as a result of the information shared we now have a much clearer picture of the situation in Sri Lanka and our investigations are continuing.”

    Sri Lanka secures $11.5 mn withheld by ICC

    COLOMBO – Sri Lankan cricket's crisis-ridden governing body announced Sunday it had secured the release of $11.5 million withheld by the International Cricket Council for eight months due to a row over its leadership.

    The ICC froze the funds due to Sri Lanka after the country's government last year appointed an unelected official to run the sport following a bitter dispute between rival candidates.

    Sri Lanka Cricket has long been beset by graft allegations and in-fighting, with the ICC recently labelling it the most corrupt cricket administration.

    Delayed elections were finally held late last month, with Shammi Silva chosen as president.

    "Sri Lanka Cricket wishes to announce that following high level discussions with the ICC, the new Executive Committee of the SLC has successfully secured its due portion of finances from the ICC," the governing body said.

    Former SLC head Thilanga Sumathipala was involved in talks with the ICC last week over the funding, it added.

    Sumathipala was in power for more than two years until early 2018. He decided not to stand again after a rival challenged his bid for re-election, but backed Silva's successful candidacy.

    Sri Lankan cricket has been hit by a series of scandals.

    Last month batting legend Sanath Jayasuriya was banned from all cricket for two years after admitting to two breaches of the ICC Anti-Corruption Code.

    Jayasuriya was charged in October after failing to provide his mobile phones to investigators.

    He was also accused of obstructing or delaying any investigation into corruption in the game.

    The International Cricket Council (ICC) has met with Interpol, the organization that facilitates worldwide police cooperation, to discuss closer working relations as part of its ongoing efforts to combat corruptors in the game.

    The General Manager of ICC’s Anti-Corruption Unit, Alex Marshall, was at Interpol headquarters in Lyon last week to explore how the two organisations can operate more effectively.

    Alex Marshall, General Manager – ICC Anti-Corruption Unit: “The ICC and Interpol are keen on working together and our meetings in Lyon last week were productive. The ICC has an excellent relationship with law enforcement agencies in a number of countries but working with Interpol means we are connecting with their 194 members.

    “Our focus is on education of players and prevention and disruption of corruptors. Where our enquiries reveal criminal offences have been committed, we will refer this to the relevant law enforcement organisations and this makes Interpol an important partner for us.”

    José de Gracia, Assistant Director of INTERPOL’s Criminal Networks unit: “Sport brings people together, but criminals looking to make large profits can undermine its integrity. Our meetings and cooperation with partners such as the ICC help us shape a collaborative, holistic response.”

    Banned by the International Cricket Council (ICC) for two years, former Sri Lanka skipper Sanath Jayasuriya was at the Headingley Cricket Ground on Saturday to watch the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 match between India and Sri Lanka.

    He was seen in the stands, watching the game along with another former Sri Lanka skipper Aravinda de Silva. The ICC has taken note of the same and will ensure that he doesn’t go anywhere near the players or the officials.

    Claire Ferguson, ICC General Manager, Strategic Communications, said: “He is banned from any official cricketing activity, which does not include attending games as a fan. But we are making sure that he does not get access to any lounge or any team area, officials, players or the players’ families and representatives. Obviously, there are already measures in place to safeguard this, but we are making sure he doesn’t get any passes or invites.”

    Jayasuriya was in February banned from all cricket-related activities for two years after he admitted to breaching Articles 2.4.6 and 2.4.7 of the ICC’s Anti-Corruption Code.

    The first breach was failure or refusal to cooperate with any investigation carried out by the ICC’s Anti-Corruption Unit (ACU), including failure to provide accurately and completely any information and/or documentation requested by the ACU as part of such investigation.

    The second breach was obstructing or delaying any investigation that may be carried out by the ACU, including concealing, tampering with or destroying any documentation or other information that may be relevant to that investigation and/or that may be evidence or may lead to the discovery of evidence of corrupt conduct under the Anti-Corruption Code.

    Sri Lankans with betting interests to be barred from cricket body

    Colombo - Sri Lankans involved in gambling firms will be barred from the nation's cricket governing body as officials bid to eradicate match-fixing scandals that have dogged the sport, the government said Thursday.

    Sri Lankan cricket has been mired in corruption scandals in recent years, including claims of match fixing ahead of an international Test against England last year.

    Sports Minister Harin Fernando said he was introducing regulations to bring the country in line with International Cricket Council (ICC) provisions that ban individuals with connections to gambling firms from being involved in the sport's administration.

    "From now on, anyone who is involved in betting or has a close relative involved in betting will not be able to hold office," Fernando told reporters in Colombo.

    The changes appear aimed at the former president of Sri Lanka Cricket, Thilanga Sumathipala, whose family owns a gambling business.

    Sumathipala, a controversial businessman and politician, is an executive committee member of Sri Lanka Cricket. He has repeatedly denied involvement in the gambling side of the family business.

    Fernando said earlier this year that the ICC considered Sri Lanka one of the world's most corrupt cricketing nations, adding the sport's local governance was riddled with graft "from top to bottom".

    In November, former Sri Lankan fast bowler Dilhara Lokuhettige was suspended for corruption linked to a limited-over league in 2017.

    He was the third Sri Lankan player charged for violating the ICC's anti-corruption code, following charges levelled against former captain and ex-chief selector Sanath Jayasuriya, and former paceman Nuwan Zoysa.

    Jayasuriya was found guilty of failing to cooperate with a match-fixing probe and was banned for two years, while Zoysa was suspended over the match-fixing accusations.

    Former Sri Lanka player and coach Nuwan Zoysa has been found guilty of three offences under the ICC Anti-Corruption Code following a hearing by an independent Anti-Corruption Tribunal.

    Zoysa was charged under the ICC Anti-Corruption Code in November 2018 and has been found guilty on all charges after he exercised his right to a hearing before a Tribunal. Zoysa remains suspended and sanctions will follow in due course.

    Zoysa has been found guilty of:

    Article 2.1.1 – for being party to an agreement or effort to fix or contrive or otherwise influence improperly the result, progress, conduct or other aspect(s) of a match.

    Article 2.1.4 – Directly or indirectly soliciting, inducing, enticing, instructing, persuading, encouraging or intentionally facilitating any Participant to breach Code Article 2.1.

    Article 2.4.4 – Failing to disclose to the ACU full details of any approaches or invitations received to engage in corrupt conduct under the Code.

    Zoysa has also been charged by the ICC on behalf of the Emirates Cricket Board (ECB) with breaching four counts of the ECB Anti-Corruption Code for Participants for the T10 League and these proceedings are ongoing.

    Sri Lanka's Nuwan Zoysa Slams ICC Over Corruption VerdictNuwan Zoysa called International Cricket Council's corruption allegation against him "a fallacious and cheap gimmick" to tarnish his reputation.

    Former Sri Lanka fast bowler Nuwan Zoysa on Friday accused the International Cricket Council of announcing that he had been found guilty of match corruption without telling him first. The world body said Thursday that an anti-corruption tribunal had found him guilty of three offences and that he would remain suspended until a punishment is announced. The 42-year-old, also a former bowling coach to the national side, was accused of agreeing to introduce players to an Indian national to arrange match-fixing at a tournament in the United Arab Emirates, according to his lawyer, Chrishmal Warnasuriya.

    He had already been suspended since an investigation was launched in 2018.

    Zoysa told reporters at his lawyer's office that he had yet to be informed of the tribunal's verdict when normally it had to give a decision within 30 days of the end of hearings.

    "It was a shock," he said of the ICC statement released Thursday.

    "It is a fallacious and cheap gimmick by the ICC to perform such an act intentionally to tarnish my reputation and the reputation of my beloved country."

    Zoysa had been charged with "being party to an agreement or effort to fix or contrive or otherwise influence improperly the result, progress, conduct or other aspect of a match."

    Four counts under the Emirates Cricket Board's anti-corruption code in the Gulf nation's T10 League are still being dealt with, according to the ICC.

    It has insisted that Zoysa was informed in line with usual practice and that the full judgement will be published when the tribunal confirms the sanction.

    Zoysa's lawyer, Warnasuriya said the ICC had been on a "witch hunt" against Sri Lanka and that five other players were under investigation.

    Sri Lanka introduced a law against match-fixing last year after then-sports minister Harin Fernando declared that the ICC considered Sri Lanka the world's most corrupt cricket nation.

    "The ACU questioned Nuwan in English, a language he is not comfortable with, and did not allow him to speak in Sinhala. They wanted him to frame other players," Warnasuriya said.

    "After getting legal advice, Nuwan refused to implicate other players and that is when the ACU started going against him. There is a witch hunt against our players."

    Zoysa, who played in 30 Tests and 95 One-day Internationals before retiring in 2007, said he had been jobless since his suspension in October 2018.

    Sri Lanka's former skipper Sanath Jayasuriya was banned for two years in October 2018 for failing to cooperate with a match-fixing inquiry.

    There was some very interesting cricket in the current Galle versus Colombo match.

    Can you elaborate? Galle has a good number of players from Pakistan as well as someone with priors in Mohammad Amir. So definitely a worrying sign.

    Could this explain Afridi's departure?


    I wonder if PSL will be suspicious of the Gladiator franchise now. And if ICC opens an investigation, that could be end of QG as we know it.

    Wow you may be right about Afridi.

    It has been a very "interesting" tournament to say the least

    The other team was more suspicious, Colombo Kings. For Galle, there was one suspicious stumping of Rajapaksa, other than that the runouts can be put down to stupidity.

    Just watched highlights of today's match with surge of run-outs and one particular former SL player's inning was very suspicious. This is just based on higlights I could be wrong. But those run outs though. Forgot the easiest dropped catch in the first over.......very suspicious match.

    Why are people bothered about the “interesting aspects” of a T20 game/leave - it’s built for “interest”.

    They say, everything is allowed in war & love ..... I say, everything should be allowed in T20.
