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.

Sri Lanka's selectors have removed Angelo Mathews as ODI captain 10 months after he was asked to resume captaincy duties, and have appointed Test captain Dinesh Chandimal in his place. The move comes after Mathews attracted a hail of public criticism over the team's performance in the Asia Cup, where they were knocked out following first-round defeats to Bangladesh and Afghanistan.
