Zoysa charged under ICC anti-corruption code
Colombo: Former Sri Lankan pacer and bowling coach Nuwan Zoysa has been provisionally suspended by the International Cricket Council after being charged with three counts of breaching the ICC's anti-corruption code.
The allegations against the former left-arm pacer deal with Articles 2.1.1, 2.1.4 and 2.4.4. The first one deals with "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."
The second deals with "directly soliciting, inducing, enticing or encouraging a player to breach Code Article 2.1.1" while the last covers "failing to disclose to the ICC’s Anti-Corruption Unit full details of any approaches or invitations he received to engage in corrupt conduct under the Code."
Zoysa, the former left-arm pacer, has 14 days from November 1 to respond to the charges.
The development comes two weeks after Sanath Jayasuriya was charged of breaching the ICC's anti-corruption code under two separate counts relating to non-co-operation with an ICC investigation.
