Sri Lanka on Friday revoked a one-year international ban on three top cricketers who were disciplined six months ago for breaching  regulations while on tour in England.

The trio — vice-captain Kusal Mendis, opener Danushka Gunathilaka and wicket-keeper Niroshan Dickwella — had paid the $50,000 penalty imposed on each and appealed the ban, a board official said.

“Considering that there were no transgressions since they were banned in July, the board decided to accept their appeal and allow them to play again,” the official told AFP.

Officials said that the trio will be available for selection for the upcoming three-match ODI series against Zimbabwe.
