Former Sri Lanka seamer and coach Nuwan Zoysa was on Wednesday banned from all cricket for six years after being found guilty of trying to fix matches and failing to disclose corrupt approaches
Nuwan Zoysa called International Cricket Council's corruption allegation against him "a fallacious and cheap gimmick" to tarnish his reputation.
Former Sri Lanka fast bowler Nuwan Zoysa was charged under the ICC anti-corruption code in November 2018 and is already serving suspension on match-fixing charges.
Nuwan Zoysa and Avishka Gunawardene were charged with breaching the Emirates Cricket Board anti-corruption code.
Fourty-year-old Nuwan Zoysa is now the second Sri Lankan to be charged by the ICC's anti-corruption unit.
