Sanath Jayasuriya responds to ICC’s charges: Always conducted myself with integrity

first_imgSri Lanka’s legendary cricket Sanath Jayasuriya has said that he has advised not to comment on the charge of non-cooperation levied on him by the International Cricket Council (ICC) relating to an ongoing anti-corruption probe.The ICC on Monday charged Jayasuriya with two counts of breaching the ICC Anti-Corruption Code and was given 14 days to respond, starting October 15. However, these charges are in relation with non-cooperation and he is not accused on indulging in any corrupt activity.Jayasuriya, one of the heroes of Sri Lanka’s 1996 World Cup triumph and a former chairman of selectors, has played in 445 ODIs, scoring 13430 runs including 28 hundreds. In 110 Tests, he scored 6973 runs including 14 hundreds.”…I am initially required to submit my response within 14 days. I am under strict legal advise that no comment is to be made in respect of the above charges as such a course would offend the ICC Rules,” Jayasuriya said in a statement.Also read – Sanath Jayasuriya charged with breaching ICC Anti-Corruption CodeEven though Jayasuriya refused to explain the charges and the events that led to it, he maintained that ICC’s charges are not relation to match fixing or any similar “corrupt activity”.He added that he had always conducted himself “with integrity and transparency”.”However, I am under advise to state that the above charges do not contain any allegations pertaining to match fixing, pitch fixing or any other similar corrupt activity,” he said.”I have always conducted myself with integrity and transparency with matters concerning the sport and I will continue to do so,” he added.advertisementThe ICC has also not specified the events that prompted its action but mentioned these two articles that Jayasuriya has been charged under.1. Article 2.4.6 – Failure or refusal, without compelling justification, to cooperate with any investigation carried out by the ACU, including failure to provide accurately and completely any information and/or documentation requested by the ACU as part of such investigation.2.Article 2.4.7 – Obstructing or delaying any investigation that may be carried out by the ACU, including concealing, tampering with or destroying any documentation or other information that may be relevant to that investigation and/or that may be evidence or may lead to the discovery of evidence of corrupt conduct under the Anti-Corruption Code.A source in Sri Lanka Cricket told PTI that Jayasuriya is in the line of fire for “trying to block” an ICC probe which began in 2015.The investigation led to Galle curator Jayananda Warnaweera being banned for three years in 2016 for failing to cooperate with the Anti-Corruption Unit (ACU).The SLC source said when approached by the ICC, Jayasuriya refused to part with some information in his phone, which was sought by the governing body for its probe.According to ESPNCricinfo, Sri Lanka’s 2017 ODI home series against Zimbabwe, which the islanders lost, is under the ICC’s scanner. Jayasuriya was into his second term as chairman of selectors at that time.After signing off from international cricket, Jayasuriya tried his hands at politics and in 2010 became an elected member of the Sri Lankan parliament, a stint which ended in 2015. He also served as a minister during the time.In 2013, he became the selection committee’s chairman for the first time. The tenure ended in 2015 after a string of failures by the Lankan team.His second innings in the job, which began in 2015 itself, ended after the team’s home series debacle against India in 2017.(With PTI inputs)last_img read more
