Former Sri Lankan batsman Aravinda de Silva, on Tuesday, referred to as for strict motion in opposition to the trio of Kusal Mendis, Niroshan Dickwella, and Danushka Gunathilaka for breaching the COVID-19 bio-bubble in England.
De Silva reminded the Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) board that the three gamers had poor data earlier of their profession, and an appropriate punishment then wouldn’t have led to the current state of affairs.
“These three players have had bad records earlier in their career. If we had given the suitable punishment at that time they would have not repeated this type of mistake. If we cannot give them the suitable punishment, they will never learn a lesson from this incident,” De Silva stated as quoted by every day information.lk.
“They should have realised their misbehaviour and especially what was the fault they have done off the field. They should realise their responsibility and represent the country. When a bio-bubble is created they have to live according to the rules and regulations,” De Silva, who can also be the chairman of the SLC cricket committee, added.
Earlier, former Sri Lanka captain Kumar Sangakkara had additionally shared his ideas on the matter and stated that correct counseling must be given to all three gamers.

Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) has shaped a five-member committee that may examine the case.
Video footage purporting to indicate the three gamers out late in Durham, the place the primary of three one-day internationals was held, was posted to Twitter.
SLC has determined to carry again cricketers Kusal Mendis and Niroshan Dickwella for breaching the bio-bubble.
