The problems of three Sri Lankan players – Kusal Mendis, Niroshan Dickwella and Danushka Gunatilleka – are further compounded. Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) has formed a five-member committee to look into biological bubble violations committed by three players during their tour of England. Upon discovering the breach, the three were sent home from the middle of the series. Despite the ban on the movement of players due to the threat of Kovid-19, fans have made a video of the trio taking to the streets after losing the game.
The SLC Investigative Committee comprises Justice Nimal Dasanayak (Retired Judge of the Supreme Court of Sri Lanka), Panduka Keertananda (Lawyer), Asela Rekhava (Lawyer), Sahithya Wickremasinghe (Lawyer) and Major General (Retired) MRV D Joyce. Sri Lanka has had some tough times on and off the cricket field. The board says there has been a long-standing dispute between players and the SLC over national contracts and that it is not necessary at this time.
