CONTROVERSIES OF KUSAL MENDIS
In July 2020, Mendis was arrested after being involved in a fatal road accident in Panadura. Mendis was driving a vehicle that hit an elderly cyclist, who later died in hospital. A day after the incident, Mendis was released on bail.
On 20 February 2022, Mendis scored a match-winning sixth T20I half century against Australia. His unbeaten 69 runs helped Sri Lanka to win the match by five wickets, with him being named the player of the match. On 23 May 2022, he was hospitalized after leaving the field holding his chest minutes before lunch on the first day of the second Test against Bangladesh. The doctors “suspect muscle spasms” as the reason for his discomfort but an ECG test has “come out clear”.
On 28 June 2021, Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) suspended Mendis, Danushka Gunathilaka and Niroshan Dickwella after they breached the team’s bio-secure bubble during Sri Lanka’s tour of England. All three players were seen in the city centre of Durham, with SLC sending them all back home ahead of the ODI matches. In July 2021, following the outcome of the incident, Mendis was suspended from playing in international cricket for one year. Sri Lanka Cricket agreed to lift the ban early, rescinding the punishment in January 2022
