ICC suspends Lanka bowling coach over fixing
Thursday 01 November 2018

 

Former Sri Lanka international Nuwan Zoysa has been provisionally suspended with immediate effect after being charged with three counts of breaching the ICC Anti-Corruption Code.
Zoysa, who represented Sri Lanka in 30 Tests and 95 ODIs, has 14 days from 1 November 2018 to respond to the charges.
The ICC in a release stated that said the 40-year-old has been charged with three offences under Article 2.1.1, 2.1.4 and 2.4.4 of its code. The charges relate to being party to an effort to fix or contrive or to otherwise influence improperly the result, progress, conduct or other aspect of an International match, directly soliciting, inducing, enticing or encouraging a player to breach Code Article 2.1.1 and failing to disclose to the ICC’s Anti-Corruption Unit full details of any approaches or invitations he received to engage in corrupt conduct.
Earlier in the month, Sri Lankan great Sanath Jayasuriya was charged by the ICC two counts of breaching its Anti-Corruption Code.
Jayasuriya, 49, played 110 Tests, 445 ODIs and 31 T20Is for Sri Lanka in a distinguished international career that ran from 1981 to 2011. He held the post of Sri Lanka Cricket’s chairman of selectors until last year.
