Saint Lucia: Sri Lanka agreed to keep playing the second Test against West Indies on Saturday "under protest" after getting caught up in a potential ball-tampering controversy.
The Sri Lanka Cricket board later said in a statement that the team protested the decision taken by the umpires citing "Changing the Condition of the Ball" and had refused to take to the field.
They were assessed five penalty runs although that relatively minor punishment was inconsequential compared to the Sri Lankans´ obvious anger at being accused of what amounts to cheating.
After discussions between officials and the players, match referee Javagal Srinath upheld Gould and Dar's decision, with the five penalty runs taking the Windies to 123 for two in response to the tourists' 253 all out.
It appeared for some time that the day´s play at least - and possibly the rest of the match - might be in doubt.
The Sri Lankan Biard ensured that they "will take all necessary steps to defend any player, in the event any unwarranted allegation is brought against any members of the team". The match eventually resumed after a two-hour delay, but Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) have said the players are effectively continuing with the game "under protest".
Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) later released a statement denying any wrongdoing by its players.
Play was set to resume 10.50am local time and Sri Lanka captain Dinesh Chandimal led out his team to the middle, but after further discussions with the umpires the Sri Lanka team began walking back to the boundary. It was done to ensure the continuity of the match.
