Don’t jump the gun with Kusal: Mahela

Former Sri Lankan cricket captain Mahela Jayawardena said today that everyone should remain positive and should not make early-statements about the result on the random drug test done on Kusal Janith Perera.

Kusal was recalled by the SLC yesterday from New Zealand after a sample he provided for a random drug test during the recent Pakistani tour had been positive for a banned substance.

Mahela in a tweet said we should not jump the gun with Kusal.

“Let’s not jump the gun with Kusal. We have to wait for the B test and even after that for the explanation how it happened,” the tweet said.

    What a stupid damaging process ,. Why cannot ICC conducts complete examination. And then release the final result to the media , rather than doing reputational damage to cricketers ,
