Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) has suspended three cricketers, including batsman Kusal Mendis and wicketkeeper Niroshan Dickwella, for violating a bio-bubble during the current tour of England and ordered them to return home immediately.
Apart from these two, opener Dhanushka Gunatilaka was seen roaming the streets of Durham at night after Sri Lanka’s loss in the third T20 International. Sri Lanka suffered a crushing defeat by 89 runs in this match. All these three players were part of this match.
“The Executive Committee of Sri Lanka Cricket has suspended Kusal Mendis, Dhanushka Guntilaka and Niroshan Dickwella for breaching the bio bubble and asked them to return to Sri Lanka immediately,” SLC secretary Mohan de Silva said in a statement. ‘
Earlier, reacting to the video posted by a Sri Lankan fan, SLC chief Shammi Silva had said, “It is under investigation as he has violated the code of conduct”.
Sri Lanka lost the T20I series that ended on Saturday 0-3. After October 2020, they had to face defeat in the fifth consecutive T20 series. Sri Lanka will now play a three-match ODI series against England. Its first match will be played on June 29 at Chester Lee Street.
