Sri Lanka suspend Gunathilaka for six matches
Danushka Gunathilaka was suspended after a complaint by team manager Asanka Gurusinha.
NEW DELHI – All-rounder Danushka Gunathilaka has been suspended for six limited overs matches and fined 20% of his annual fee for misconduct during last month’s series loss to India, the SLC said on Thursday.
Gunathilaka was suspended after a complaint by team manager Asanka Gurusinha. Local media reported the 26-year-old had missed a training session.
“The board had asked the selectors not to consider Danushka for six white-ball games,” Gurusinha said. “Yes, it is for disciplinary reasons that they made that decision.”
Sri Lanka lost all three tests, five one-dayers and the solitary Twenty20 international against India.
Gunathilaka pleaded guilty to the charges on 29 September and will miss Sri Lanka’s one-day series against Pakistan, which will be held in the United Arab Emirates later this month.
