DUBAI: An independent anti-corruption tribunal of the ICC on Monday cleared former Sri Lanka player Avishka Gunawardene of corruption charges, allowing him to resume participation in cricket-related activities with immediate effect.
Gunawardene was facing two charges under the Emirates Cricket Board’s Anti-Corruption Code.
The tribunal upheld one charge (2.4.6) against Sri Lanka’s Nuwan Zoysa but dismissed the other three charges.
“The detailed decision will be announced to the parties in due course and remains subject to appeal,” an ICC release said.
Gunawardene was charged with Article 2.1.4 that relates to – Directly or indirectly soliciting, inducing, enticing, instructing, persuading, encouraging or intentionally facilitating any Participant to breach Code Article 2.1.
