Cricketer Jeffrey Vandersay was given a one-year suspension from all forms of international cricket, which will stand suspended for one year, for misconduct reported against him during the concluded West Indies Tour, the Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) announced today.

It said Vandersay was also fined with 20 per cent from his annual contract fee over the misconduct.

“He was imposed with the punishment, following his admission of guilt over the incident. The SLC also informed him that during the period of serving the suspended sentence, any breach of the contractual obligation shall be severely dealt with together with the suspension,” it said.

    Good move by SLC. The current state of Sri Lanka team is not due to the lack of talent but due to the lack of discipline.

    Compared to ball tampering, this is frivolous. This did not involve any on-field activity. So give a lighter sentence. This guy is a top talent. Properly nurtured could become a Muralitharan type and win the world cup for us.
