Former Sri Lanka player and coach Nuwan Zoysa has been banned from all cricket for six years after an ICC Anti-Corruption Tribunal found him guilty of breaching the ICC Anti-Corruption Code.
 
The ban for Mr Zoysa is backdated to 31 October 2018, when he was provisionally suspended.
 
As previously advised, following full hearings and presentations of written and oral argument, the Tribunal found Mr Zoysa guilty of:
 
Article 2.1.1 – for being party to an agreement or effort to fix or contrive or otherwise influence improperly the result, progress, conduct or other aspect(s) of an International Match.
 
Article 2.1.4 – Directly or indirectly soliciting, inducing, enticing, instructing, persuading, encouraging or intentionally facilitating any Participant to breach Code Article 2.1. 
 
Article 2.4.4 - Failing to disclose to the ACU full details of any approaches or invitations received to engage in corrupt conduct under the Code.
 
Mr Zoysa has also been charged by the ICC on behalf of the Emirates Cricket Board (ECB) with breaching three counts of the ECB Anti-Corruption Code for Participants for the T10 League and these proceedings are ongoing.
 
Alex Marshall, ICC General Manager – Integrity Unit, said: “Nuwan played 125 matches for Sri Lanka, attending a number of anti-corruption sessions during a decade-long international career. In his role as a national coach, he should have acted as a role model. Instead, he became involved with a corrupter and attempted to corrupt others.
 
“Contriving to fix a game betrays the basis of sporting principles. It will not be tolerated in our sport.”
 
The written decisions on liability (unanimous) and sanction (by majority), which have been redacted to protect the identities of the ICC’s witnesses and other third parties, are available here.
