Local Mendis, Gunathilaka, Dickwella to be banned from all forms of cricket

Sri Lanka cricketers Kusal Mendis, Danushka Gunathilaka and Niroshan Dickwella were recommended to be banned from all forms of cricket along with a fine of USD 25,000 for breaching the bio-bubble during the England tour.

The decision was taken by a five member committee appointed to conduct a disciplinary inquiry into the actions of the national players during the last tour of England.

The accused cricketers were summoned before the committee today (29).

The committee recommended that Danushka Goonetileke and Kusal Mendis be banned for two years and Niroshan Dickwella for 18 months.

In addition, they have each been imposed a fine of US $ 25,00.

SLC said an announcement will be made after an official decision has been reached.

The three players were called back to Sri Lanka immediately after a video circulated on social media showing the players roaming the streets of England, breaching the bio-bubble during the Sri Lanka Cricket team's tour of England.
