Chandimal gets 2-match suspension
Colombo: Sri Lanka captain Dinesh Chandimal has been suspended from his team's upcoming two games in the Nidahas T20 Trophy after being found guilty of a "serious over-rate offence" in Saturday's match against Bangladesh here.
Chris Broad of the Elite Panel of ICC Match Referees imposed the fine after Chandimal's side was ruled to be four overs short of its target when time allowances were taken into consideration.
"In accordance with Article 2.5.2 of the ICC Code of Conduct for Players and Players Support Personnel, which relates to serious over-rate offences, players are fined 10 per cent of their match fees for the first two overs and 20 per cent per additional over their side failed to bowl in the allotted time, while the captain receives two suspension points," said the ICC in a statement.
As two suspension points equate to a ban from one Test or two ODIs or two T20Is.
