The five-member disciplinary committee formed by Sri Lanka Cricket has recommended a two-year bans for batsmen Danushka Gunathilaka and Kusal Mendis with 18-month sanction for wicketkeeper-batter Niroshan Dickwella for their recent breach of bio-secure bubble during their tour of United Kingdom.

Additionally, they have been imposed a hefty fine of US$ 25,000. In late June,  they were found to have breached the COVID safety bio-bubble in Durham ahead of the three-match ODI series against England, the PTI reported.

They were immediately put under suspension and sent back home. They faced a five member disciplinary committee headed by a judge and it has found the trio guilty.

They were overlooked for selections for the ongoing ODI and T20 series with the visiting Indians which is due to be concluded later tonight.

The committee's punitive recommendations are subject to approval by the SLC executive committee, SLC officials said.

    These clowns should have been banned for 5 years !!!! Not two!! For bringing disrepute to the country Anyways they will get away from this with the influence of their friends in SLC...

    Great! Hope not to see them again, ever!

    The fine is too much. Do drug peddlers and tax evaders get a similar punishment?. Is it jealous witch hunt?

    dickie bird Thursday, 29 July 2021 11:05 PM

    Remember the punishment meted out to the Rebel cricketers during Late Hon. Gamini Dissanayake's time. . Treat these trio with stringent punishment.

    The punishment is very harsh.Check on the diciplinary actions from other nations for similar offence.We must make sure they are punished but not their careers ruined.

    This is appropriate as they need to face the music for their undisciplined, disgraceful and risky behaviour when on tour. Hope there will not be any political interference to get them cleared. This should be a lesson for the rest. All players need to prove their abilities on the field and not on social media.

    Too Harsh !! 1 year ban more than adequate !!

    What about a ban for life to the SLC management team who have defrauded millions .

    It is because they are slaves of the "family".

    Ridiculous suspension and fine. You want to discipline them or ruin their careers? Murderers are pardoned and even given top jobs. They should just resign and play ipl.
