Disciplinary action to be taken against Lasith Malinga

The Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) board announced that a disciplinary Inquiry is to be conducted against national player Lasith Malinga for repeated breach of the terms of his contract.

Malinga has on two occasions since his return from the Champions Trophy acted in contravention of the terms of agreement which specifically prevents him from making any statements to the media without the prior written consent of the Chief Executive Officer.

Accordingly it was decided by the executive committee of the cricket board, upon the instance of his first infraction, on or about 19th June 2017 to take disciplinary action on Malinga.

Subsequent to a repeated breach on or about the 21st June 2017, the Committee has expedited the said inquiry which will be conducted by a Disciplinary Panel comprised of Secretary SLC Mohan de Silva, Chief Executive Officer Ashley de Silva and Chairman Disciplinary Committee Asela Rekawa AAL.

The findings of the said hearing will be forwarded to the Executive Committee for suitable disciplinary action. (Colombo Gazette)
