The International Cricket Council (ICC) on Monday has charged umpire Jatin Kashyap with breaching the anti-corruption code.

“The breaches arose out of an investigation into International Matches in 2022,” read the ICC statement.

Kashyap has been charged for refusing and delaying the Anti-Corruption Unit’s (ACU) investigation, which is a breach of Article 2.4.6 and 2.4.7.

Article 2.4.6 of the Code is failing or refusing, without compelling justification, to cooperate with the ACU investigation in relation to possible Corrupt Conduct under the Code, including (without limitation) failing to provide accurately and completely any information or documentation requested by the ACU as part of such investigation.

Article 2.4.7 of the Code is obstructing or delaying the ACU’s investigation in relation to possible Corrupt conduct under the Code, including concealing, tampering with or destroying any documentation or other information that may be relevant to that investigation and/or that may be evidence of or may lead to the discovery of evidence of Corrupt Conduct under the Code.

ICC has given Kashyap 14 days from May 19 to respond to the charges.
