Cricket: Sri Lankan trio suspended for bio-bubble violation in England, Sports News


Sri Lankan cricketers Kusal Mendis, Niroshan Dickwella and Danushka Gunathilaka will be sent home after being held responsible for breaking the bio-bubble in England.

Sri Lanka Cricket Secretary Mohan De Silva revealed the subtleties in a statement: “The Sri Lanka Cricket Executive Committee has suspended Kusal Mendis, Danushka Gunathilaka and Niroshan Dickwella for violating the biobubble and they will be immediately recalled to Sri Lanka .

The news comes hours after a video of Kusal Mendis and Niroshan Dickwella outside the bio-bubble circulated the web via online media. The duo were seen meandering through Durham City on Sunday night, hours after the team were beaten by England in the third ODI.

Speaking to Cricket NewsWire, the SLC chairman also asserted that the three Sri Lankan players will take the next accessible return flight: “We will take them back to Sri Lanka on the next available flight, they are suspended pending ‘investigation.”

The controversy comes at the worst time for Sri Lanka. They have been vigorously reprimanded for their miserable performances, with many former players expressing concern after seeing the desolate territory of Sri Lankan cricket.

Fans also turned on players as they sent a mission to no longer follow Sri Lanka cricketers on social media after being beaten 3-0 by England in the T20I series. The problem comes from the stalemate between the players and the SLC, with the players refusing to sign the agreements proposed by the board of directors.
