The Sri Lanka Sports Medical Unit has recommended that the 20-over format of the sport is inappropriate to be played at school level and should be banned.

Chief of Sri Lanka Sports Medical Unit Dr.Arjuna de Silva said that the Twenty20 cricket format impels technical adjustments and it was important for young cricketers to develop their game before jumping into the format. 

The body has suggested to the Minister of Education Bandula Gunawardena and the Minister of Sports Mahindananda Aluthgamage to ban the format.

Dr. De Silva also added that several current Sri Lankan players have voiced similar concerns.
