The trouble with Ostarine: Jimmy Wallhead’s
16th March 2018
Sanath Jayasundara, a former performance analyst at Sri Lanka Cricket, has been banned from all cricket for seven years after the ICC Anti-Corruption Tribunal found him guilty of breaching the ICC Anti-Corruption Code. The ban is backdated to 11 May 2019, when he was provisionally suspended.
Following a full hearing and presentation of written and oral argument, the Tribunal found Jayasundara guilty of:
Alex Marshall, ICC General Manager – Integrity Unit, said: “Jayasundara’s attempt to bribe a Minister is a grave transgression while the efforts to cover up his tracks and the lack of remorse are hugely disappointing. We won’t tolerate corrupt conduct in our sport and my team will be relentless in preventing such behaviour. This ban should serve as a deterrent for anyone who may be tempted along the wrong path.”
The decision on both liability and sanction (which has been redacted to protect the identities of the ICC’s witnesses and other third parties) is available here. The media release on the charges is available here.
