Sri Lanka Cricket have banned three players for a year for breaching Covid-19 bio-security protocols during the senior men's tour of England and Wales.
Kusal Mendis, Niroshan Dickwella and Danushka Gunathilaka have received a heavy penalty after breaking the team's curfew and walking through the centre of Durham in June.
Their excursion was captured on camera by two members of the public, with the videos shared widely across social media.
SLC charged the trio with bringing Sri Lankan cricket and the country of Sri Lanka into disrepute, and following an independent inquiry all three will remain suspended from international cricket for 12 months.
