Sri Lanka Cricket has banned former Sri Lanka middle-order batsman Chamara Silva with a two-year ban from all "cricket-related activities" for his supposed role in a Tier B first-class match that featured unusual scoring rates.

The ruling comes after a seven-month inquiry.

The alleged incident had taken place during the third day of the Panadura Cricket Club and Kalutara Physical Culture Club match played from January 23 to 25.

Many others have also been banned for their participation in the game, including Kalutara captain Manoj Deshapriya for a two-year period.

The remaining players, coaches, and administrators have all been given one-year bans, while the clubs have each been fined 500,000 rupees each.

The result of this match has been discounted as well, meaning Sri Lanka Ports Authority Cricket Club earns promotion to Tier A instead of Panadura, and Kalutara face relegation.
