Sri Lanka are likely to be hit with an International Cricket Council sanction after failing to fulfill their media duties following yesterday’s defeat against Australia.

Dimuth Karunaratne’s side was beaten by 87 runs at the Oval, leaving their hopes of progressing to the semi-finals hanging by a slender thread.

Sri Lanka Captain Karunaratne and other players from his team were due to face the press after the match.

But they refused to attend the press briefings and are liable to face action from tournament organizers the ICC.

Sri Lanka’s refusal to meet the media comes just days after their team manager Ashantha de Mel slammed the ICC’s treatment of the squad.

De Mel blasted the quality of pitches, practice facilities, transport and accommodation at the World Cup.
