On Sunday 9th May 2021, an independent Anti-Corruption Tribunal unanimously cleared former Sri Lanka player and coach Avishka Gunawardene of two charges against him under the Emirates Cricket Board’s Anti-Corruption Code, allowing him to resume participation in cricket with immediate effect. Mr Gunawardene had been suspended from participating in cricket since 9th May 2019 whilst the investigation and tribunal proceeded. Although the decision of the tribunal has been announced, its full written reasons are not expected for some weeks. Mr Gunawardene will make no further comment until those written reasons are handed down. Mr Gunawardene was represented before the Independent Anti-Corruption Tribunal by barrister Mr Milliken-Smith QC of 2 Bedford Row Chambers, London, and his legal team was led by Mr Manoj Rupasinghe of Lloyds PR Solicitors, London.
