* Sri Lanka cricket captain, coach and manager admit to breaching Level 3 offence
Fri, Jun 22, 2018, 07:02 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

June 22, Colombo: The International Cricket Council (ICC) today announced that Sri Lanka cricket captain Dinesh Chandimal, coach Chandika Hathurusinghe and manager Asanka Gurusinha have admitted to breaching the Article 2.3.1, a Level 3 offence, which relates to "conduct that is contrary to the spirit of the game".

"Following their admission, the ICC, in accordance with Article 5.2 of the ICC Code of Conduct, has appointed The Hon Michael Beloff QC as the Judicial Commissioner to hear the case to determine the appropriate sanction," the ICC said in a media release.

The three were charged by the ICC Chief Executive David Richardson on Tuesday for their involvement in the Sri Lankan cricket team's refusal to take to the field in St Lucia at the start of Saturday's play, which caused a two-hour delay in the start of play.

This action was alleged to amount to a serious breach of the Laws of Cricket and to be contrary to the spirit of the game.

Mr Beloff has been appointed as the Judicial Commissioner to hear Chandimal's appeal against the match referee's decision for changing the condition of the ball and, as per Article 5.2.3, will use Friday's hearing in that appeal to hold a preliminary hearing to establish the procedural schedule on the Level 3 charges.

All Level 3 breaches carry an imposition of between four and eight suspension points.
