by Wisden Staff 2 minute read

Sanath Jayasuriya has been charged with two counts of breaching the ICC anti-corruption code.

The former Sri Lankan captain and chairman of selectors has been charges under two articles and has been given 14 days to respond, the ICC said.

The first charge is, according to the ICC, for “failure or refusal, without compelling justification, to cooperate with any investigation carried out by the ACU, including failure to provide accurately and completely any information and/or documentation requested by the ACU as part of such investigation.”

The second is for “obstructing or delaying any investigation that may be carried out by the ACU, including concealing, tampering with or destroying any documentation or other information that may be relevant to that investigation and/or that may be evidence or may lead to the discovery of evidence of corrupt conduct under the Anti-Corruption Code.”

The ICC said it will not make any further comment at this stage.
