Sri Lanka captain Dinesh Chandimal, coach Chandika Hathurusinghe and manager Asanka Gurusinha have each been banned for two Tests and four one-day internationals.

Chandimal has already served a one-match suspension for altering the condition of the ball in the second Test against West Indies, and sat out the opening clash with South Africa in Galle – which will count as one of the two Tests he must miss.

The Sri Lanka skipper, along with his coach and manager, was also disciplined after the team refused to take to the field in St Lucia in protest at the allegations of foul play.

This brought an ICC charge for a Level 3 offence, relating to "conduct that is contrary to the spirit of the game", and their punishment was confirmed on Monday.

The trio were handed eight suspension points, resulting in bans for the second Test against South Africa and four ODIs, while they will also have six demerit points on their records.
