Sri Lanka Cricket has named an all-new selection committee headed by former Sri Lanka fast bowler Ashantha De Mel, a move which comes just six months from the World Cup. Alongside De Mel, the committee comprises three other former national players in Brendon Kuruppu, Hemantha Wickramaratne and Chaminda Mendis.

Former Sri Lanka cricketer Dilhara Lokuhettige has been charged with three counts of breaching the Anti-Corruption Code of the Emirates Cricket Board (ECB), the International Cricket Council (ICC) said in a media release.

On behalf of the ECB, the ICC has charged him with the following charges under the Anti-Corruption Code in relation to the T10 Cricket League played in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in 2017.

Article 2.1.1 – being party to an effort to fix or contrive or to otherwise influence improperly the result, progress, conduct, or other aspect(s) of a Domestic Match.

Article 2.1.4 – directly soliciting, inducing, enticing or encouraging a player to breach Code Article 2.1.1.

Article 2.4.4 – failure to disclose to the Designated Anti-Corruption Officer (without unnecessary delay) full details of any approaches or invitations he received to engage in Corrupt Conduct under the Code.

Dilhara Lokkuhettige has been temporarily suspended with immediate effect. He has been given 14 days from today (November 13) to respond to the above charges.
