The Sri Lankan team, which has failed to replicate its Asia Cup title triumph in the T220 World Cup, is currently in the news for all the wrong reasons. Player discipline has put Sri Lankan cricket in jeopardy. Chamak Karunaratne has been in trouble ever since he was embroiled in gang-rape allegations and the board has taken action against him.

The Sri Lankan board issued a statement on Wednesday, 23 November, banning Karunaratna for one year for breach of contract rules.

Karunaratna is not currently banned as the board has suspended the sentence. That is, during this time he will be able to play for the national team, but if he is found guilty again during this one year, then this ban will come into force.

Apart from the ban, he has also been fined $ 5,000, but the Sri Lankan board did not clarify in its statement that Karunaratne did not violate the rules, but definitely said that the all-rounder accepted his mistake.
