SLC set up panel to investigate suspended trio's misconduct

Sri Lanka Cricket set up an five-member inquiry panel to investigate alleged misconduct by suspended players Niroshan Dickwella, Danushka Gunathilaka and Kusal Mendis

Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) on Wednesday announced a five-member panel to inquire into the alleged bio-bubble breach by suspended trio Niroshan Dickwella, Danushka Gunathilaka and Kusal Mendis during the limited-overs tour of England.

The trio were spotted roaming the streets in Durham after the final T20 international, which Sri Lanka lost. SLC suspended the players immediately after videos of a possible bio-bubble breach emerged on social media.

The panel includes Justice Nimal Dissanayaka (Retd Judge of the Supreme Court of Sri Lanka), Panduka Keerthinanda, Attorney-at-Law, Asela Rekawa, Attorney-at-Law, Uchitha Wickremasinghe, Attorney-at-Law, and Major General (Retd) M.R.W. De Zoysa.

"Sri Lanka Cricket wishes to announce the appointment of a 05 Member Panel to inquire into the alleged misconduct of three players, namely Kusal Mendis, Dhanushka Gunathilake and Niroshan Dickwella while touring England with the National Team," an official statement said.

"The three players were suspended, from all forms of cricket, until the completion of the inquiry," the statement added.

Sri Lanka, led by Kusal Perera, have come under pressure after losing the T20I series 3-0 and the ODI series 2-0 with former greats Sanath Jayasuriya, Muttiah Muralitharan, Roshan Mahanama, Hashan Thilakaratne and Tillekaratne Dilshan expressing dismay at the poor performance.
