Sri Lankan cricket mired in more controversy with Nuwan Zoysa being charged by ICC for fixing. Serious and tragic in equal measure. Shows that corruption still rife, but think what the likes of Duleep Mendis, Roy Dias etc must be going through? https://t.co/dZNM9FpMqS

Another Sri Lankan cricketer, even if a retired one, Nuwan Zoysa, is charged by the ICC’s Anti Corruption Unit for trying to influence the outcome of games. Those lovely old cricket lovers in Sri Lanka must be deeply saddened. I fear though that this may not be the last name
