Dilhara Lokuhettige Banned From All Forms of Cricket For 8 Years

The ICC has banned Sri Lankan cricketer Dilhara Lokuhettige from all forms of cricket for 8 years. The former Sri Lankan all-rounder was banned from all forms of cricket for violating anti-corruption rules.

Alex Marshall, general manager of the ICC’s Anti-Corruption Unit (ACU), said of Dilhara’s ban, “Dilhara, who represents Sri Lanka in international cricket, has been involved in a number of corruptions and violated the code.”

The ICC convicted Dilhara in January after a hearing by an anti-corruption tribunal. Dilhara was temporarily banned on April 3, 2019, after allegations of corruption surfaced. The duration of the ban will be considered from that time.

Dilhara has played nine ODIs and two international Twenty20 matches for Sri Lanka from 2005 to 2013.
