Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) has actually made a decision to raise the 1 year restriction troubled cricketers Danushka Gunathilaka, Kusal Mendis as well as Niroshan Dickwella.
Appropriately, they will certainly be qualified to play throughout the Zimbabwe trip, based on conference called for health and fitness requirements, the SLC claimed.
The triad was put on hold from worldwide cricket for a year on July 30, 2021 for damaging Sri Lanka’s bio-bubble on an evening out in Durham the previous month
They were additionally fined 10 million rupees (USD 50,000 approx.) each, as well as were not permitted to play residential cricket for 6 months.
Furthermore, they were purchased areas in probation for 2 more years, while the SLC had actually mandated counselling with a physician advised by the board also.
The suspensions were much shorter than those advised by the independent panel that had actually been appointed to explore the event.
That board, headed by previous High court court Nimal Dissanayaka, had actually advised two-year suspensions for Gunathilaka as well as Mendis, that were considered to have priors, as well as an 18-month suspension for Dickwella.
The 3 gamers were handled severely partially due to the general public reaction versus their activities. Had it not been for video footage, recorded by participants of the general public as well as uploaded on social networks, Sri Lanka’s clinical team might not have actually know that these gamers also left the group resort as well as breached the bio-bubble on June 27, 2021.
Along with breaching the bubble, the cricketers were condemned of breaching the group’s time limit, which was 10:30 pm, as well as “bringing scandal to Sri Lanka Cricket as well as the nation”. ( ADA DERANA)
