Dinesh Chandimal out of third Test after dismissal of appeal against ball-tampering sanctions

Sri Lanka captain Dinesh Chandimal will miss the day-night Test against West Indies in Barbados. After a four-hour hearing on Friday, Michael Beloff QC, the ICC-appointed judicial commissioner, dismissed Chandimal’s appeal against his one-match suspension for ball-tampering.

According to an ICC release, Beloff will provide a written reasoned decision on Wednesday.

The original decision of match referee Javagal Srinath, to award Chandimal two suspension points and fine him 100% of his match fee, will stand.

Beloff also set Wednesday, June 27 as the date to hear the code-of-conduct charges against Chandimal, Sri Lanka coach Chandika Hathurusingha and manager Asanka Gurusinha for “conduct that is contrary to the spirit of the game”. 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.

Hathurusingha and Gurusinha, therefore, will be available to coach and manage Sri Lanka during the third Test at the Kensington Oval.
