Sri Lanka's Jeffrey Vandersay.

Sri Lanka on Saturday recalled leg spinner Jeffrey Vandersay from the tour of the West Indies tour over conduct that violated “contractual obligations”, the country’s cricket board said.

The 28-year-old was included in the 17-member squad for the three Test series against the West Indies, the third match of which stated in Barbados on Saturday.

“Vandersay, who toured West Indies with the national team is sent back to Sri Lanka owing to his conduct, which amounts to breach of contractual obligations,” the board said in a statement.

It adds to the woes of the Sri Lankan team who started the third and final Test without regular skipper Dinesh Chandimal.

Chandimal was handed a one-match ban over ball tampering charges during the second Test that ended in a draw. Chandimal was given the ban after being spotted applying saliva to the ball with a sweet in his mouth.

The ICC on Friday dismissed Chandimal’s subsequent appeal. Suranga Lakmal is leading Sri Lanka in Chandimal’s absence.
