Summary

  • Colombo – Sri Lanka on Saturday recalled leg-spinner Jeffrey Vandersay from the West Indies tour over “conduct” that violated contractual obligations, Sri Lanka’s cricket board said.
  • “Vandersay, who toured West Indies with the national team is sent back to Sri Lanka owing to his conduct, which amounts to breach of contractual obligations,” the board said in a brief statement, without giving further details.
  • The recall adds to the woes of Sri Lanka, who are already facing the final match without regular captain Dinesh Chandimal.
  • Chandimal was given the ban after being spotted by television cameras during the second Test applying saliva to the ball, apparently with a sweet in his mouth.
  • Hathurusingha and Gurusinha are free to perform their duties until then, but Chandimal will have to sit out the 3rd Test.
