    Durham bubble breach: Gunathilaka, Mendis and Dickwella suspended from international cricket for one year

    They will not be allowed to play domestic cricket for six months, ruling them out for much of the next season

    , Kusal Mendis, and Niroshan Dickwella have all been suspended from international cricket for a year for breaking Sri Lanka's bio-bubble on a night out in Durham last month. They have each also been fined 10 million rupees (USD 50,000 approx), and will not be allowed to play domestic cricket for six months, which rules them out for much of the next season.

    In addition, they will be in probation for two further years, during which another year's suspension will hang over their heads. SLC has mandated counselling with a doctor recommended by the board as well.
