Sri Lanka v India, 3rd Test, SSC, 5th day

Ishant, Chandimal Handed One-match Bans

Colombo: Ishant Sharma and Dinesh Chandimal have been handed one-match suspensions for behaviour that breached the ICC code of conduct during the SSC Test, while Dhammika Prasad and Lahiru Thirimanne were fined 50% of their match fees.

This means that Ishant (who received "two suspension points") will miss India's first Test against South Africa, in Mohali, in November. Chandimal ("one suspension point") will miss Sri Lanka's opening ODI in the home series against West Indies.

The incident happened in the 76th over when Chandimal made deliberate physical contact with Sharma when India's number-11 batsman was in the middle of a heated exchange with fast bowler Dhammika Prasad.

In addition, both Lahiru Thirimanne and Prasad have been fined 50 per cent of their match fees.
