Thu, Oct 5, 2017, 07:32 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Oct 05, Colombo: Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) Thursday announced that allrounder Danushka Gunathilaka has been suspended from International Cricket for six matches for misconduct and breach of contract during the recent series against India.

Gunathilaka was also fined 20 percent of his applicable annual contract fee for violations.

The suspension effective 30th September 2017, was issued by the Executive Committee in accordance with SLC constitution and the player's contract.

Gunathilaka has pleaded guilty to the charges on 29th September 2017.

The cricket board had ordered an investigation last month following a complaint from team manager Asanka Gurusinha against the 26-year-old player.

According to an SLC official the charges relate to misconduct and behaving in a manner unbecoming of a player, and the breach of several clauses of his contract which relate to fitness and discipline.

The opening batsman was omitted from Sri Lanka's squad for the ODI series against Pakistan in the UAE.
