The B Sample of cricketer Kusal Janith Perera had also tested positive for banned substances and therefore, he might face a 4-year suspension from cricket, Sports Minister Dayasiri Jayasekara said today.

Speaking to the Daily Mirror, he said Kusal might face a maximum of 4-year suspension if the ICC decided.

“However, the government will make a plea to the ICC to reduce the time period of suspension, if it decided to suspend Kusal,” the Minister said.

Kusal was recalled from New Zealand by the SLC in early December after a sample he provided for random drug testing had yielded a positive result for a banned substance.

    What a shame. Are not the cricketers told that they should always inform the authorities even if they take any type of tablets or meds? These are professional players who are paid thumping fees. No excuses. Should act in a professional manner. Good lesson for young aspiring cricketers

    Positive test has created problem, when he starts his career as positive. Is there any way for "C" sample?

    According to the present minister of sports the banned substance has gone into the digestive system of the said cricketer through an international coup to prevent him from playing in the next world cup T20 championship.
