Sri Lanka bowling coach Zoysa charged with match-fixing

Sri Lanka bowling coach and former global seamer Nuwan Zoysa has been charged by the ICC with three breaches of the organisation's Anti-Corruption Code and provisionally suspended with immediate effect. Furthermore, Sri Lanka Cricket have sent Zoysa on immediate leave following the charges.

England's three-Test series against Sri Lanka starts on Tuesday.

According to Article 2.4.4 players or coaches have to approach the cricket board to disclose the "full details of any approaches or invitations he received to engage in corrupt conduct".

Zoysa is charged, among other things, for "being party to an effort to fix or contrive or to otherwise influence improperly the result, progress, conduct or other aspects of an global match", the statement said.

Forty-year-old Zoysa is the second Sri Lankan to be charged by the ICC's anti-corruption unit (ACU). He has been a fast-bowling coach in the Sri Lankan set up since September 2015.
