    Published on January 10, 2019

    International Cricket Council, ICC today announced a 15-day amnesty to participants who have previously failed to report any information concerning corrupt conduct in Sri Lankan cricket.

    The amnesty, which will run from 16-31 January, will apply to all participants under both the ICC and Sri Lankan Cricket Anti-Corruption codes.

    Under these codes, both domestic and international participants are obliged to report, without delay, full details of any approaches, incident or information that they receive to engage in corrupt conduct.

    Failure to do so is a serious offence and can result in a ban from cricket of up to five years.

    ICC Anti-Corruption General Manager Alex Marshall, said this is the first time the ICC has held an amnesty to face very specific challenges in Sri Lanka.
