Sri Lanka Basketball to investigate player’s conduct on tour

The Sri Lanka Basketball Federation said it is investigating a case of misconduct on the part of a player who had been found in the company of a female player in her hotel room during the 3X3 Asian championships which concluded in Mongolia last week.

It followers the captain of the Sri Lanka team submitting his report on the player’s conduct on their return to the country after winning the championship. Four boys and four girls made the tour. Dr Chula Senaratne, the Secretary General of the Sri Lanka Badminton Federation said they received the complaint and were in the process of taking up the matter after presenting it at their executive committee meeting.

Two girls who made the tour were below the age of 18 and the team was without a lady chaperon for the tournament.

The same team of boys and girls are scheduled to leave the country to contest the second leg of the 3X3 Asian meet.


Hi went through the article about player conduct of Sri Lanka Basketbal. The tournament waa not an 3x3 Asian Championship. It was the U23 3x3 Nations League Tournament conducted by FIBA under the 3x3 development programme. Further Sri Lanka lost all matches in the men's category and won only 1 match in the women's category. Finally the article says Sri Lanka Badminton Federation which needs to be corrected as Sri Lanka Basketball Federation. It was the women's team captain who submitted the report to the Secretary General of SLBF. Further, the two teams will leave to Japan to take part in the next leg the U23 3x3 Nations League Tournament end of this month.
