Sanath Jayasuriya

Former Sri Lanka Cricket captain and selector Sanath Jayasuriya said yesterday he can be back in action following the completion of the ICC rules. 

“I am happy to announce that, the ICC ACU, has informed me that the terms of my agreed sanction have been met and my period of ineligibility has concluded. I am now, therefore, re-eligible to participate or be otherwise involved in the game of cricket,” Sanath said in a statement. 

“I reiterate the fact that I have always maintained a high degree of integrity throughout my cricketing career. I have always put country first and the cricket loving public are the best witness to this aspect,” he added.

Sanath said he is grateful and extended his sincere thanks to the Sri Lankan public and fans who supported him throughout this period. “You were a source of great strength to me during this difficult time,” he said. 

“I thank the Anti-Corruption Unit of the ICC for the cooperation extended to me in this regard and I extend my appreciation for the services rendered to me by my lawyers Kalinga Indatissa President’s Counsel and Vishwa de Livera Tennekoon Attorney-at-Law,” the statement added.
