London: Upul Tharanga will not take field against India as the ICC has suspended the Sri Lanka captain from their next two Champions Trophy matches after his side were ruled to be four overs short of their target against South Africa on Saturday.

David Boon of the Emirates Elite Panel of ICC Match Referees imposed the suspension. Players were fined 10 per cent of their match fees for the first two overs and 20 per cent of their match fees for the additional overs their side failed to bowl in the allotted time, with the captain also receiving two suspension points. “As two suspension points equate to a ban from one Test or two ODIs or two T20Is, whatever comes first for the player, Tharanga has been suspended from upcoming matches,” the release said.
