The Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) today announced that it has suspended Danushka Gunathilake from six international cricket matches for breaching the ‘player code of conduct and contractual obligation’.

In a statement, the SLC said of the six matches, the ban on three matches have been handed over for the recent violation of the 'Player Code of Conduct and Contractual Obligation'.

“Another three matches are given from a suspended sentence of one year, which Gunathilaka was already serving since 18 October, 2017 for breaching the 'Player contract,’ in an earlier occasion. Gunathilaka will also not be paid the match fee for the concluded second test match which Sri Lanka played against South Africa during the ongoing tour, along with any bonus and or other payments in connection thereto,” the statement said.

    Why not we put all playets in a dormitory during play days and have gurusinghe and hathurisinghe by the doors. Curfew imposed no breaches.

    You got many points incorrect, vandarsay did not banned, he was given one year supended sentence which means anyother vioalation he could be potentially get punishment, he was already in the SA squad as a stand by player, Gunathilaka has the same one year suspended sentance

    With success creeps moral weakness straight into head and destroys the fruits of achievements.

    as per my knowledge, sports act says disciplinary committee members should not be related with cricket governing body or cricketers. if so this player can go to the courts for justice

    Typical Sri Lanka double standards and cads. We do not condone such in our South Africa.

    Whatever we do, we do better when we live lives of character and integrity. Playing with none of these distractions is much easier. But we are human. Who can change us?

    If he is innocent, why the suspension

    Namal Perera Friday, 27 July 2018 09:04 PM

    If he breached the code of conduct, how much good player he is, should be punished.

    Vara Friday, 27 July 2018 09:39 PM
