Former SL skipper Sanath Jayasuirya admits guilt, banned by ICC for corruption

A bombshell hit Sri Lanka cricket when its former Chief Selector and ex skipper Sanath Jayasuriya was banned for two years after admitting to violating anti-corruption code as part of ICC's widespread probe into match fixing in Sri Lankan cricket.

After being charged in Oct 2018, Jayasuriya immediately declared his innocence. Jayasuriya finally admitted to "concealing, tampering with or destroying evidence".

Jayasuriya was the Chairman of Selectors when he came under scrutiny of this ICC investigation. He had retired from playing in 2012 but wielded enormous influence as Chief Selector and a junior minister in the government.
