Sri Lanka Captain Dinesh Chandimal, Coach Chandika Hathurusinghe and Manager Asanka Gurusinha have admitted to breaching Article 2.3.1, a Level 3 offence, which relates to “conduct that is contrary to the spirit of the game”.

Following their admission, the ICC, in accordance with Article 5.2 of the ICC Code of Conduct, has appointed The Hon Michael Beloff QC as the Judicial Commissioner to hear the case to determine the appropriate sanction.

Mr. Beloff has been appointed as the Judicial Commissioner to hear Mr. Chandimal’s appeal against the match referee’s decision for changing the condition of the ball and, as per Article 5.2.3, will use Friday’s hearing in that appeal to hold a preliminary hearing to establish the procedural schedule on the Level 3 charges.

The three were charged by the ICC Chief Executive David Richardson on Tuesday for their involvement in the Sri Lankan cricket team’s refusal to take to the field in St Lucia at the start of Saturday’s play, which caused a two-hour delay in the start of play.

This action was alleged to amount to a serious breach of the Laws of Cricket and to be contrary to the spirit of the game.

All Level 3 breaches carry an imposition of between four and eight suspension points.

    Look like these guys are damn dishonest people and they damage the image of our country. On the other hand if he admitted why he made an appeal like a very honest player? These guys should be punished severely instead of fomenting them and give our village boys the opportunity.

    These are 2 different offence. Chandimal is appealing for the ball tampering...this is for refusing to play on Saturday morning

    So the damage is done. Now we need to go on a damage control mode. It is as just last night the the “Black Coat Peoples Channel “ commented that rubbing spit on a ball is fine. What a bunch of jokers!

    Like what Australia has done to its Captain and Vice Captain , punish all three involved for bringing not only direpute the game of cricket but SRI LANKA as well.This is in addition to the punishment imposed by ICC commissioner.

    Wonder what was the idea behind taking Attorney Gomin on this tour?

    Boycotting to take into the field is wrong. They should have gone to the field with a protest. Immature decision by coach and manager bringing disrepute to the game of cricket. It is wrong not taking into the field for 2 hours. Ultimately it cost the match.
