Zoysa, Gunawardene charged for corruption in cricket

On behalf of the Emirates Cricket Board (ECB), International Cricket Council (ICC) has charged former Sri Lankan cricketers Nuwan Zoysa and Avishka Gunawardene for breaching counts of ECB Anti-Corruption Code for the participants of the T10 league which is played in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

Zoysa has been found breaching four counts (Articles 2.1.1, 2.1.4, 2.4.4 and 2.4.6) while Gunawardene violated two counts (Articles 2.1.4 and 2.4.5). Being appointed as the Anti-Corruption Official by ECB for the fun-filled cricket league, the governing body of the International cricket issued the aforementioned charges.

While Zoysa was already suspended by the ICC in November last year for three breaches of ICC’s Anti-Corruption Code, the 40-year has landed in further trouble after being provisionally suspended under the ECB code along with his countryman Gunawardene. It is important to note that the Sri Lankan duo will have 14 days from May 9 to submit a reply to these charges.
