Team India all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja has been suspended for the final test against Sri Lanka after the No.1 bowler in the world breached ICC’s code of conduct during the 2nd Test against Sri Lanka which India won by a convincing margin. Despite his heroics with both bat and the ball, Jadeja couldn’t celebrate his Man of the Match Award for long after handed a one match suspension by the match referee.

Jadeja had thrown the ball back to Sri Lankan opener Dimuth Karunaratne even though he was well stationed in the crease. Following the throw, Jadeja’s total demerit points became 6 in 2 years which is more than the permitted amount given by ICC. It was indeed a dangerous throw which could have hit the batsman and injured him.

This also meant Jadeja was fined 50% of his match fees for his breach of conduct. The footage shows that it was a normal throw by the look of things but the direction of the throw was terrible. Many people might have different views on the incident but the bottom line is that Jadeja won’t be part of the Playing XI which will take the field against Sri Lanka in the 3rd Test.

Meanwhile, the Indians have been rampant in the series so far and have already taken an unassailable 2-0 lead in the 3 match series and unless anything dramatic happens we might expect a 3-0 thrashing. The hosts have been thoroughly outplayed in all 3 departments of the game and haven’t found a clue to counter the star studded Indian team.

They must be pleased with the fact that they at least put up a fighting show with the bat in the 2nd innings of the 2nd Test with both Kusal Mendis and Dimuth Karunaratne scoring brilliant centuries. Despite their efforts, Sri Lanka eventually lost the game by a big margin of an innings and 53 runs.
