COLOMBO – Cricket’s world body the ICC on Thursday charged suspended former Sri Lanka fast bowler Dilhara Lokuhettige over three new match corruption accusations.
The 38-year-old Lokuhettige is the third Sri Lankan to be charged with breaching the International Cricket Council’s anti-corruption code, following cases against former captain Sanath Jayasuriya and former fast bowler Nuwan Zoysa.
Lokuhettige – suspended since November over alleged match-fixing at the 2017 inaugural T10 league in Sharjah – has now been accused of being “party to an effort to fix” or “influence improperly” an international game, and of “directly soliciting and inducing a player”.
He has also been accused of failing to disclose approaches to take part in corruption.
No details were given of the matches involved.
