The International Cricket Council (ICC), on behalf of the Emirates Cricket Board (ECB), has indicted Nuwan Zoysa and Avishka Gunawardene for breaking the ECB Anti-Corruption Code for members in the T10 League.
In a statement, the ICC said the duties relate to the T10 Cricket League played in the UAE in December last year. The ICC was chosen by the ECB as the chosen anti-corruption official for the purpose of the ECB’s code for this tournament and as such, has delivered these charges on the ECB’s behalf.
The charges follow a recent pardon to participants who had previously failed to report any information regarding immoral conduct in Sri Lankan cricket.
The ICC said Nuwan Zoysa has been charged for being party to an agreement to effect wrongly the result, progress, conduct or other aspect(s) of a match, for directly or indirectly soliciting, inducing, enticing, instructing, persuading, encouraging or intentionally facilitating any participant to breach the code article, for failing to disclose to the ACU full details of any methods or invitations received to engage in corrupt conduct under the code and for failing or refusing, without compelling justification to cooperate with any investigation carried out by the ACU in relation to possible corrupt conduct under the code.
Meanwhile, Avishka Gunawardene has been charged for directly or indirectly soliciting, inducing, enticing, instructing, urging, encouraging or intentionally easing any participant to breach the code and for failing to disclose to the ACU (without unnecessary delay) full details of any incident, fact, or matter that comes to the attention of a participant that may have evidence corrupt conduct under the Anti-Corruption Code by another member.
