Sri Lanka captain Dinesh Chandimal has pleaded not guilty to ball-tampering charges and will face a hearing at the end of the second Test against the West Indies, the International Cricket Council (ICC) said Sunday.

“Dinesh Chandimal has pleaded not guilty to breaching Article 2.2.9 of the ICC Code of Conduct and, as such, Javagal Srinath of the Panel of ICC Match Referees will hold a hearing following the conclusion of the St Lucia Test against the Windies,” said an ICC statement.

Chandimal was charged after television footage from the final session’s play on Friday appeared to show him reaching into his left pocket, removing sweets and putting them in his mouth before applying the substance to the ball, which got the attention of umpires Aleem Dar and Ian Gould.
