Bhanuka Rajapaksa penalised for breaching player contract

Sri Lanka cricketer Bhanuka Rajapaksa has been penalised for breaching the player contract for 2019/2020.

Rajapaksa has been handed a one-year ban from all forms of cricket, suspended for two years.

He has also been fined US$ 5,000 after an inquiry found that he had breached the obligations of his Player Contract for 2019/2020 while appearing in social media and other media interviews.

Meanwhile, decision has been taken to draft Rajapaksa into the 13-member squad, currently undergoing training in Colombo, under a bio-bubble, focusing on future tours.

The Sri Lanka Cricket board said that the decision was taken after Rajapaksa achieved the required fitness levels, which is one of the prerequisites for national selections.

He is expected to join the bio-bubble tomorrow. (Colombo Gazette)


  1. Good.
    Lets see what happens to those three cricketers who breached the Bio-Bubble in UK. That is a serious breach.
    No suspended sentence for them. Instead should be suspended from all forms of cricket for (05) years and as no agreements has been signed, no contracts should be signed.
    Further Kusal Mendis should be sent to Courts to face charges for man Slaughter by way of a Hit & Run, a Rash & negligent Act.
    he need to serve a Custodial Sentence for his crime.
    Kusal Mendis brought a CURSE to the Team
