DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — Sri Lankan cricket great Sanath Jayasuriya has been charged with two breaches of the world governing body's anti-corruption code.

The International Cricket Council says Jayasuriya was charged with offenses relating to the "failure or refusal" to cooperate with an investigation carried out by its anti-corruption unit, and also for "obstructing or delaying" an investigation.

He has 14 days to respond to the charge.

The 49-year-old Jayasuriya won the 1996 Cricket World Cup with Sri Lanka as a player during a career that took in 110 tests, 445 one-day internationals and 31 Twenty20s. He later became the national team's chairman of selectors, and also served on the Sri Lankan parliament from 2010-15.
