Sri Lanka skipper Tharanga gets two-match suspension

Sri Lanka skipper Tharanga gets two-match suspension”

"Andy Pycroft of the Emirates Elite Panel of ICC Match Referees imposed the suspension after the Sri Lanka side was ruled to be three overs short of its target when time allowances were taken into consideration, International Cricket Council (ICC) said in a statement".

Sri Lanka's selectors assembled in Kandy and are likely to announce an interim captain in Tharanga absence.

Sri Lanka have received a sever jolt in a bid to save the ongoing series against India.

Thirimanne, who made his last worldwide ODI appearance in January 2016, has appeared in a 107 ODIs for the country and is expected to provide good experience to the batting group.

India won the day-night game, the third of five matches in the series, by six wickets to take an unassailable 3-0 lead. The way we played we are having lot of confident. Kapugedara suffered a blow to his hand during practices but will be available to lead the side as it was only a "minor" injury. There was a big improvement from our bowling unit in the last two games. If they succeed, it will be their seventh successive victory against Sri Lanka and the fourth-in-a-row in Sri Lanka. He briefly returned when called up as an injury replacement at the 2015 World Cup, but his 2016 comeback provided slightly more longevity and he was named captain for the tri-series in Zimbabwe, a position he retained when Angelo Mathews was ruled out of the 2017 series in South Africa. But I think as a leading cricketing nation, we can't depend on just 15 players. Akila Dananjaya bowled brilliantly in the last game.
