Blow for Sri Lanka as Hasaranga suspended for Bangladesh Tests

He was fined 50 per cent and accumulated three demerit points for his offence. This brought his total demerit points to eight over a 24-month period.

The all-rounder already had five demerit points after receiving three demerit points during the third T20I against Afghanistan in Dambulla last month. Following this, he was suspended for two T20Is against Bangladesh.

Now, with the addition of the final demerit points, he has crossed the threshold of eight demerit points, which, in accordance with section 7.6 of the Code, have been converted into four demerit points.

The four-point suspension equates to a two-Test or four-ODI or T20I ban, whichever comes first – Hasaranga will therefore miss both ICC World Test Championship Tests against Bangladesh.
