Sri Lanka all-rounder Dasun Shanaka has been fined 75 per cent of his match fee after he admitted to ball tampering on day two of the Nagpur Test against India.

Shanaka was charged by the umpires following the second day's play, after television cameras showed him picking up an area on the ball next to the seam on several occasions.

He duly admitted to "changing the condition of the ball" and accepted the proposed sanction handed down by match referee David Boon, meaning there was no need for a formal hearing.

In addition to his fine, Shanaka has picked up three demerit points. Any player reaching four or more within a 24-month period faces a suspension.

Boon said: "These are early days in Dasun's career and I am sure this sanction will ensure he is more careful when maintaining the condition of the ball in the future."

India ended day two of the second Test in command on 312-2, thanks largely to hundreds from Murali Vijay and Cheteshwar Pujara.

    This tour should never have been arranged in the first place. Our cricketers are making fools of themselves there.

    Not only the cricketers, but most of our politicians too.

    It is very shameful to hear this incident, SL cricket should take disciplinary action against these kind of action not to repeat again, it is badly affecting SL Cricket and its reputation.

    That is not cricket, to say the least.

    What a shame because we always had a reputation we played the gentlemanly game as gentlemen. We seem to be losing the games and our good reputation too - naturally when "bookies" are in control.

    really sad and frustrated to see Lankan team performing like this , have stopped watching Lankan matches and I really think fans need to avoid going for matches to show their true feelings for team that we loved a lot and still do but there is too many fundamental changes is needed. from players to committee this is their profession
