ICC finds Nuwan Zoysa guilty of three offences under anti-corruption code

Former Sri Lanka paceman Nuwan Zoysa has been found guilty of three offences under the anti-corruption code following a hearing by an independent anti-corruption tribunal.

Zoysa was initially charged under the ICC anti-corruption code two years ago and subsequently requested a hearing on the matter.

However, he has been declared guilty on all charges of breaching the anti-corruption code, resulting in his continued suspension from the game. More details regarding further sanctions will be revealed by the ICC in due course.

Zoysa's breaches relate to:

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.

The charges laid out against Zoysa concern his coaching stint with Team Sri Lanka in the inaugural edition of the T10 Lague in 2017. The 42-year-old has additionally been charged by the ICC on behalf of the Emirates Cricket Board (ECB) for breaching four counts of the administrative body's anti-corruption code for the T10 League.

Zoysa represented Sri Lanka in 30 Test matches and 95 ODIs with his last international appearance occurring in 2007 against India.
