ICC law allows Dinesh Chandimal "to share" the dressing room
COLOMBO, Mar 12 : Captain Dinesh Chandimal, who has been suspended for two immediate Sri Lankan matches against India and Bangladesh from March 12 and 16 respectively, can still guide his team from the dressing room.

On Sunday, the ICC match referee (Chris Broad) handed him a two-match suspension for slow over rate during his match against Bangladesh on Saturday and the captaincy was handed over to Thisara Perera.

"He (Dinesh Chandimal) will be there at the match on Monday. He is still our (off-field) captain and will also share the Sri Lankan dressing room", the team manager, Asanka Gurusinha, speaking exclusively, said here before the commencement of the match against India".

"He will share the dressing room as per the ICC law", he further added.

According to Article 8.2 of the code, Chandimal has a right to appeal against the (slow over-rate) sanction. Pending the outcome of the hearing, unless otherwise determined by the independent Judicial Commissioner appointed to hear the matter, the decision of the Match Referee will remain in effect. Chandimal will, therefore, not be eligible for selection.

However, nowhere in the law, it prohibits him to be an off-field team member.

Earlier in the day, SLC board chief Thilanga Sumathipala met the foreign journalists at the proposed Brain Center, where the High Performance manager Simon Willis, trainer Nick Lee and the CEO Ashely De Silva described this world's first high tech lab in the country.
