Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) has decided to suspend Danushka Gunathilaka from six international cricket matches for breaching the ‘Player Code of Conduct and Contractual Obligation’ today (27).
Out of the total six matches, three matches have been handed over for the latest violation of the ‘Player Code of Conduct and Contractual Obligation’ he has entered to with the SLC.
Whilst another three matches are given from a suspended sentence of one year, which Gunathilaka was already serving since October 18, 2017, for breaching the ‘Player Contract,’ in an earlier occasion.
"Gunathilaka will also not be paid the match fee for the concluded second Test match which Sri Lanka played against South Africa at the SSC during the ongoing tour, along with any bonus and or other payments in connection thereto," an SLC media release stated.
The sanctions will come into force with immediate effect.
