Lankan govt expresses dismay at ICC decision to suspend cricket captain, coach & manager

Sri Lankan sport minister Faizer Mustapha in a statement today said the decision is a blow to the spirit of game but added that it will be accepted without any reservation as his country is a responsible ICC member.

The minister pointed out that the law governing the offence of ball tampering is somewhat vague and lacks clarity.  

It called upon ICC to revisit the applicable laws and ensure that a set of simple, clear and certain rules are put in place regarding the issue.

The statement came after ICC review mechanism upheld the charges against the three Sri Lankans related to conduct that is contrary to the spirit of the game.

The three were charged for their involvement in the Sri Lanka cricket team’s refusal to take to the field in second test match against West Indies last month after Sri Lankan captain was found guilty of changing the condition of the ball.
