Sri Lanka skipper Chandimal charged by ICC

Sri Lanka captain Dinesh Chandimal has been charged with breaching the ICC Code of Conduct in the fallout of the ball-tampering controversy in the second Test against the West Indies.

The international governing body tweeted the news, detailing that the captain was in breach of Level 2.2.9 of the ICC Code of Conduct for 'changing the condition of the ball' - the same charge levelled at Australia batter Cameron Bancroft during the infamous Cape Town Test in March.

Umpires Aleem Dar and Ian Gould advised the visitors they would be changing the ball ahead of the third day’s play and awarding the West Indies five penalty runs after raising concerns towards the end of day two regarding the condition of the ball.

The decision resulted in lengthy deliberations, with the Sri Lankan captain refusing to lead his team onto the field on day three as the Windies prepared to resume their innings at 2-118 in pursuit of Sri Lanka’s first innings total of 253.
