Dilhara Lokuhettige faces corruption charges

Former Sri Lanka player Dilhara Lokuhettige has been accused with three counts of breaking the International Cricket Council’s anti-corruption code, the sport’s central body said on Thursday.

The charges against the bowling all-rounder include being party to an effort to fix the result or advancement of an international match, and directly petitioning, inducing, alluring or encouraging a player to do the same the report said.

Lokuhettige, who played nine one-day players and two Twenty20 internationals for Sri Lanka, has been accused for similar wrongdoings relating to a 10-over league in the United Arab Emirates last year.

Sri Lanka Cricket has been thrown into chaos as the ICC continues to investigate corruption claims in the country.

In January, the ICC fixed Sri Lankan cricketers a 15-day pardon to report previously unnamed information relating to corruption in the sport.
