Sri Lanka Cricket on Friday lifted suspensions on Danushka Gunathilaka, Kusal Mendis and Niroshan Dickwella which prevented the trio from playing international cricket for one year.
In July last year, SLC's disciplinary committee found Gunathilaka, Mendis and Dickwella guilty of breaching the covid-19 bio-bubble during the limited-overs tour of England. They were sent back home with immediate effect after they were caught on camera in the streets of Durham.
"Sri Lanka Cricket has decided to lift the one-year suspension imposed on the above 3 players from playing International Cricket, across all three formats, with immediate effect," an official release said.
The players, who were also banned from domestic cricket for a six-month period, will also be available to play in the upcoming season Lanka Premier League.
"The latest decision was taken following a request made by the 3 players to Sri Lanka Cricket to lift the ban imposed on them, pursuant to the conclusion of the LPL 2021. Based on such request, Sri Lanka Cricket obtained a report from the doctor, appointed by SLC to provide counseling for the 3 players during their period of suspension," it added.
Sri Lanka are scheduled to play Zimbabwe in a three-match ODI series starting from January 16.
