Avishka Gunawardene was cleared of two corruption charges by independent court

The International Cricket Council (ICC) said an independent tribunal had cleared former Sri Lankan batsman Avishka Gunawardene of two bribery charges and that he was allowed to resume cricket activities.

Gunawardene, who competed in six tests and 61 one-day internationals, has been accused of soliciting or instigating a participant to violate anti-corruption regulations and with not disclosing potential corruption or a suspicious approach.

The court also dismissed three of the four charges against former Sri Lankan bowler Nuwan Zoysa, who was banned from all cricket for six years last month after an ICC anti-corruption court found him guilty. for breaking their code.

Both players faced charges under the Emirates Cricket Board’s anti-corruption code after being accused of arranging matches in a T10 tournament in the United Arab Emirates in 2017.

“The detailed decision will be announced to the parties in due course and remains subject to appeal,” the ICC said in a statement.

Zoysa has been authorized to unduly influence the outcome or conduct of a match, by soliciting or inducing a participant to violate anti-corruption regulations and by failing to disclose full details of any approach to fixing a match.

However, the accusation of failure or refusal to cooperate with any investigation into possible corruption still stands.
