* Sri Lanka Cricket clarifies the ambiguity surrounding DRS appeal of Dilruwan Perera

Nov 19, Colombo: Sri Lanka Cricket today clarified the ambiguity surrounding the DRS appeal of Dilruwan Perera during the 4th day's play of the 1st Test in Kolkata earlier this afternoon.

According to ESPNCricinfo, iIn the 57th over of Sri Lanka's innings, when Empire Nigel Llong upheld an lbw appeal from Mohammed Shami when an indipper beat Dilruwan's forward defensive and hit him on the back pad, the player has started to walked towards the dressing room but turned around and asked for a review.

The TV commentators have speculated over whether he had received some sort of signal from the dressing room to turn back and ask for a review.

In response Sri Lanka Cricket said contrary to the assumptions made, there was no "message from the dressing room" involved in the requested review.

"Having mistakenly assumed that Sri Lanka were out of reviews, Dilruwan Perera had turned to leave the field when he heard Rangana Herath inquire from the on-field umpire Nigel Long if Sri Lanka have any reviews left, to which Mr. Long answered in the affirmative. It was then that Dilruwan requested the review," the SLC said in a statement clarifying the issue.

"We wish to place on record that every single Sri Lankan player and official is not only strongly respectful and bounden to uphold the rules and regulations of the ICC, but plays their game of cricket under the ethics and principles of true sportsmanship and the Spirit of Cricket," the SLC said.

With replays suggesting the ball had struck Dilruwan's pad outside the line of off stump, Llong had changed his decision to not out.
