  • Sanath Jayasuriya has been charged with two counts of breaching ICC Anti Corruption Code

COLOMBO: Sri Lanka batting great Sanath Jayasuriya has been charged with two counts of breaching the International Cricket Council's anti-corruption code, the world governing body said on Monday.

The 49-year-old has also been charged with trying to hide, destroy or tamper with evidence that could be crucial to anti-corruption investigation. Earlier in the week, the ICC announced that they were investigating "serious" charges of corruption in Sri Lanka.

"Mr Jayasuriya has 14 days from 15 October 2018 to respond to the charges".

Jayasuriya, 49, was reportedly asked to cooperate with an inquiry from ACU chief Alex Marshall who visited Sri Lanka last month.

More than six inches of rain fell in the area, with the fire brigade responding to over 250 calls overnight, according to AFP. Local reports describe waters rising by seven metres in a few hours and people scrabbling onto their roofs to await rescue.


The second charge included the "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 documentary revealed how fixers rigged two Test matches between Sri Lanka and India in July past year and Sri Lanka versus Australia in August 2016. While slightly less effective in Tests, he still averaged over 40 in 110 matches. His tally of 13,430 one-day internationals runs is fourth on the all-time list, behind only Sachin Tendulkar, compatriot Kumar Sangakkara and Ricky Ponting.

But it was in the shorter form of cricket that he really stamped his name on the game.

In 445 ODIs, he scored 13430 runs including 28 hundreds.
