Sri Lanka captain Dinesh Chandimal has been officially charged with ball tampering in the ongoing Test against West Indies - a charge he and the Sri Lanka team appear likely to contest when a hearing is held at the end of the Test. Here is the sequence that led to the state of events.

"The next morning, the umpires viewed footage (which has now been aired), of Chandimal reaching into his pocket, seemingly retrieving something from it to put in his mouth, and only a couple of seconds later, applying that saliva to the ball before handing it to bowler Lahiru Kumara."

Does not look good now if this is true!
