Suspended cricketers

119

The suspended three Sri Lankan cricketers Niroshan Dickwella, Danushka Gunathilaka and Vice-Captain Kusal Mendis arrived in Colombo yesterday after they were deported for breaching the bio-bubble in England.

The three cricketers were called back just a day before the start of the One Day International (ODI) series against England after they were seen loitering on the streets of Durham on Sunday.

The three cricketers were subsequently sent to a hotel in Negombo in order to follow the mandatory quarantine regulations.

Meanwhile, Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) have launched an investigation into the matter and called for a report from the Sri Lanka Team Manager Manuja Kariyapperuma with regard to the authenticity of the video being circulated on social media, following which SLC stated that action will be taken against the players if they are found guilty.
