Former Sri Lankan Test players Nuwan Zoysa and Avishka Gunawardene have been charged with match-fixing and given two weeks to respond, the International Cricket Council announced Friday.

The charges against the two cricketers relate to a T10 league played in the United Arab Emirates in December last year, the ICC said.

Zoysa was charged under four counts, including for "being a party to an agreement to influence improperly the result, progress, conduct or other aspects of a match".

The ICC slapped two charges against Gunawardene, one for soliciting a match-fixing breach and the other for failing to inform the Anti-Corruption Unit of the ICC.

Three months ago, the ICC banned Sanath Jayasuriya from all forms of the game for two years for failing to cooperate with an anti-corruption investigation.

Last month, ex-Sri Lanka fast bowler Dilhara Lokuhettige was suspended over three match corruption accusations.

In December, Sri Lanka's Sports minister Harin Fernando announced that the country has been rated as the most corrupt cricket nation by the International Cricket Council.
