Avishka Gunawardene cleared of all corruption related charges by ICC Panel

Former Sri Lankan Player Avishka Gunawardene, who was alleged of corruption charges, has now been lodged off.

Allowing Avishka Gunawardene to resume his participation in cricket-related activities with immediate effect, an independent anti-corruption tribunal of the ICC  cleared former Sri Lanka player Avishka of alleged corruption charges.

The Emirates Cricket Board’s Anti-Corruption Code alleged two charges for Avishka Gunawardene.

The tribunal endorsed one charge (2.4.6) against Sri Lanka’s Nuwan Zoysa but dimmed the other three charges.

The ICC release said “The detailed decision will be announced to the parties in due course and remains subject to appeal.”

Avishka Gunawardene was alleged of following two charges. 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 and Article 2.4.5 that relates to, “Failing to disclose to the ACU (without unnecessary delay) full details of any incident, fact, or matter that comes to the attention of a Participant that may evidence Corrupt Conduct under the Anti-Corruption Code by another Participant.”
