Sri Lanka Cricket, on Friday (January 7), lifted the one-year suspension imposed on Danushka Gunathilaka, Kusal Mendis and Niroshan Dickwella with immediate effect.

“The latest decision was taken following a request made by the three players to Sri Lanka Cricket to lift the ban imposed on them, pursuant to the conclusion of the LPL 2021,” SLC said in a statement.

“Upon consideration of the said report submitted by the Doctor, the Executive Committee of the SLC decided at a meeting held today (January 7) to remove the suspension of the said three players. However, the lifted suspension will remain suspended for a period of two years, during which the three players’ conduct will be closely monitored by the SLC,” the board said.
