Sri Lanka bowling coach Nuwan Zoysa has been charged with match-fixing by the International Cricket Council (ICC).

Zoysa, who played 30 Tests and 95 one-day internationals, is accused of three breaches of the ICC Anti-Corruption Code, including being party to an effort to fix an international match.

The 40-year-old former bowler has been suspended and has 14 days from 1 November to respond to the charges.

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

Zoysa is also accused of “directly soliciting, inducing, enticing or encouraging a player” to fix or influence the progress of a match and failing to disclose approaches to “engage in corrupt conduct”.

Earlier this month, Alex Marshall, general manager of the ICC anti-corruption unit, announced an investigation into “serious allegations of corruption” in Sri Lanka.(BBC)
