Dinesh Chandimal, Sri Lanka coach, manager, admit to breaching Level 3 offence

Sri Lanka cricket captain, coach and manager admit to breaching Level 3 offence Fri, Jun 22, 2018, 07:02 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

ICC charged them with the level 3 offence after Sri Lanka refused to take the field on the third morning of the second Test in St Lucia, delaying the start of play by two hours.

Chandimal was banned by match referee Javagal Srinath for one Test and ducked 100 per cent of his match fee from the second Test in St. Lucia after being reported by the on-field umpires Aleem Dar and Ian Gould for ball tampering.

Chandimal was suspended for the third Test after video footage indicated that he took candies out of his pocket and put them in his mouth.

Sri Lanka captain Dinesh Chandimal's appeal over his one-match ban for ball tampering during a Test against the West Indies will be heard on Friday, the International Cricket Council said.

Subsequently, ICC had appointed The Hon Michael Beloff QC, as the Judicial Commissioner for the hearing of the case. Sri Lanka is rated number six at present and a series win here for the Windies will see them move up the ladder in terms of ranking points.

With the third Test starting Saturday, the Islanders would be hoping for a verdict in their favour on Friday.

The player was suspected of using saliva and a sweet to tamper with the ball and give it more spin after television images picked it up.

"In the pre-series briefing held on the back of the ICC Cricket Committee recommendations, both the sides were explicitly told that the match officials would be extra vigilant towards all aspects of fair play, including changing the condition of the ball and as such it is disappointing that this has happened".
