DUBAI: The ICC has charged former Sri Lanka fast bowler Dilhara Lokuhettige for breaching its three anti-corruption codes.
The 38-year-old Lokuhettige was provisionally suspended by the ICC in November for a similar offense in relation to the T10 League in 2017 under the Emirates Cricket Board’s anti-corruption code.
The ICC says “that provisional suspension remains in full force and effect and he (Lokuhettige) has additionally been provisionally suspended under the ICC code pending the determination of these new charges.”
The charges include being party to an effort to contrive or fix an aspect of a domestic match, encouraging a player to influence an aspect of a match and failing to swiftly disclose the issue to the designated anti-corruption officer.
Lokuhettige has two weeks to respond to the new charges.
Chennai Super King captain MS Dhoni admitted to the Level 2 offence 2.20 of the IPL's Code of Conduct and accepted the sanction.
All-rounder Theunissen-Fourie, 25, represented South Africa in four internationals — three ODIs and one Twenty20 — and was part of the 2013 World Cup squad.
Steve Smith and David Warner, whose year-long bans for ball-tampering expire this month, were invited by coach Justin Langer as part of their re-integration after the scandal in South Africa that rocked the cricketing world.
Abid is almost the same height as Tendulkar and bats in a similar style, but has a long way to match the Indian maestro's phenomenal record of most Test runs (15,921), most one-day runs (18,426), most Test hundreds (51) and most one-day centuries (49) to name a few.
The 20-year-old is a key wicket taking option for Pakistan in the ten-team World Cup in England and Wales that starts May 30.
Crawford, who was making the second defence of his title, had little trouble controlling the fight and winning by a technical knockout against the overmatched Khan.
