Ex-Sri Lanka cricket coaches facing anti-corruption charges

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — The Emirates Cricket Board suspended a second Sri Lankan coach on Friday for breaching its anti-corruption code.

Avishka Gunawardene was charged with breaching two counts relating to the T10 League in the United Arab Emirates in December 2017.

The charges against Gunawardene, the coach of Sri Lanka in the league, include failing to disclose any corrupt conduct to the anti-corruption unit.

Nuwan Zoysa, a bowling coach during the league, was suspended last October on three counts, and an additional charge was laid on Friday that relates to failing or refusing, without compelling justification, to cooperate with any investigation carried out by the ACU.

Both former Sri Lanka players have 14 days to respond to the charges.
