General
SUSPENSION
He was given a three-month suspension for a doping offence at the 2011 World Cup.
The urine sample he provided after the semifinal against New Zealand contained traces of prednisone and prednisolone, both substances banned by the World Anti-Doping Agency [WADA]. He claimed he had been given a herbal remedy by a faith healer in Colombo to help with a long-standing shoulder injury. Even though the International Cricket Council [ICC] believed there was no deliberate performance-enhancing intention, the ban was still applied. "[He] failed to satisfy the high levels of personal responsibility implicit upon him as an international cricketer,' an ICC statement said.
