International Cricket Council’s (ICC) has charged

Sri Lanka’s former cricket captain Sanath Jayasuriya with two counts of breaching its anti-corruption code. Charges include “failure or refusal” to cooperate with its investigation and concealing, tampering with or destroying any documentation or other information that may be relevant to that investigation. Jayasuriya denied all charges.

It was the shorter form of cricket, One Day format, that made him famous, not merely in Sri Lanka but in the international cricket as well. He scored 13,430 runs in the game’s One Day format – a total bettered only by Sangakkara, India’s Sachin Tendulkar and Australia’s Ricky Ponting. Aljazeera reported.
