Although the trio has flown back immediately to Srilanka as per orders, the series against England is not in jeopardy. They were immediately sent on a 14-day quarantine after landing in Srilanka. On completion of the quarantine regulations, they will then have to face an inquiry into the incident that took place in Durham on Sunday.

Overnight, a video had emerged showing Mendis and Dickwella out in a public place. Gunathilaka was not present in the video, but the three admitted to the bio-bubble breach.

“They are likely to get a minimum one-year suspension if found guilty of several breaches of their contract,” one official told AFP, speaking on condition of anonymity.
