ICC Charges Dinesh Chandimal for Breaching Code of Conduct
Sri Lanka captain Dinesh Chandimal has been charged by the ICC over the ball-tampering saga in Caribbean.

Sri Lanka captain, Dinesh Chandimal was charged for “changing the condition of the ball” by the ICC in the ongoing second Test match against the Windies.

The drama unfolded on Day 3 when the match officials accused Sri Lanka for altering with the condition of the ball. As a result, the visitors refused to get on to the field. It led to a two-hour delay to the match proceedings.

Ultimately, the on-field umpires, Aleem Dar and Ian Gould awarded five penalty runs to the Windies, when Sri Lankan team came onto the field.

However, despite all the drama-filled around, Sri Lankan bowlers were on top during the day. The match is right on balance at the moment, but the saga continued late in the day.

The International cricket council (ICC) has revealed that Sri Lanka’s captain Dinesh Chandimal was charged over altering the condition of the ball. It comes under breaching the Level 2.2.9 of the ICC Code of Conduct. They announced the news of social media.

ICC’s tweet read:

BREAKING: Sri Lanka captain Dinesh Chandimal has been charged for breaching Level 2.2.9 of the ICC Code of Conduct.

However, the charges are yet to be made public amidst the ongoing controversy. Even the Sri Lankan cricket board were in support of the players in the incident. The board gave their trust of vote to the players and condemned any wrongdoings by their team.

The aftermath of the incident is even worse with the coach, Darren Lehmann stepping down.

Even the Cricket Australia’s CEO, James Sutherland resigned very recently. The latest incident once again brings ball tampering into the foray. It remains to be seen what will be the charges on Dinesh Chandimal and other players over this latest controversy.
