Jayasuriya says ICC-imposed ban has ended Featured

Former Sri Lankan cricketer Sanath Jayasuriya has announced that the two-year ban imposed on him by the International Cricket Council (ICC) has ended.

"I am happy to announce that the terms of my agreed sanction have been met and my period of ineligibility has concluded,” Jayasuriya who was slapped with the ban until October 15, 2020, announced in a media release.

"I am now, therefore, re-eligible to participate or be otherwise involved in the game of Cricket," he added.

The ICC had banned Jayasuriya from all forms of cricket after he admitted breaching two counts of the ICC Anti Corruption Code. Sanath Jayasuriya admitted to obstructing an anti-corruption probe by tampering with evidence sought by the International Cricket Council.

The Article 2.4.6 of ICC Code of Conduct deals with "failure or refusal, without compelling justification, to cooperate with any investigation carried out by the ACU."

The Article 2.4.7 deals with "obstructing or delaying any investigation that may be carried out by the ACU, including concealing, tampering with or destroying any documentation or other information."
