Sri Lanka have followed India and Pakistan by threatening to ban any national player who takes part in the Indian Cricket League (ICL).
Sri Lanka Cricket secretary Kangadaran Mathivanan said any such players "would not be considered to play even domestic cricket, or hold administrative roles."

The ban would extend to umpiring and commentating, said SLC's statement.

Former captain Marvan Atapattu has pulled out of his central contract and may be keen to join up with the ICL.

Russel Arnold, who has officially retired and is beginning a career as a television commentator, has publicly acknowledged his desire to take part.

And Sanath Jayasuriya, a member of the squad to play in the ICC World Twenty20, has also been linked with the ICL.

But Mathivanan said: "So far no current player has approached us with their intention to take part in the ICL."

Retired West Indies captain Brian Lara, Test cricket's highest run-getter, remains the only top player to have confirmed his participation in the competition.
