Sri Lanka captain Dinesh Chandimal has been banned by ICC

Sri Lanka captain Dinesh Chandimal has been suspended for one Test after being found guilty of changing the condition of the ball, the International Cricket Council has announced. The incident happened during day two of the second Test against Windies in Gros Islet, St Lucia, a match which finished in a draw. Chandimal, who has been fined 100 per cent of his match fee and given two suspension points, will now miss the third and final Test against the Windies in Barbados from Saturday.
Match referee Javagal Srinath said in an ICC statement: "After reviewing the footage of the incident, it is clear that Dinesh applied an artificial substance to the ball, namely saliva containing the residue of something he had in his mouth, an action which is prohibited under the ICC Code of Conduct.
