Sri Lanka captain Dinesh Chandimal has denied charges of attempting to change the condition of the ball during the ongoing second Test against West Indies.

By not pleading guilty to the charge laid by the ICC Chandimal will attend a hearing by match referee Javagal Srinath after the conclusion of the Test.

The ICC release yesterday stated that the officials laid the charge after television footage from the final session's play on Friday appeared to show the Sri Lanka captain taking sweets out from his left pocket and putting these in his mouth, before applying the artificial substance to the ball which the umpires viewed as an attempt to change its condition."

The video evidence will be used in the hearing which will also be attended by the match officials as well as the Sri Lankan team management.
