Danushka Gunathilaka has had his six-match international ban reduced by Cricket Sri Lanka on appeal.

Gunathilaka was originally suspended after pleading guilty to misconduct and breach of contract, the batsman also incurring a fine for unprofessional conduct during Sri Lanka's home series with India.

Having appealed the decision Gunathilaka will only serve a three-match ban, with the remaining games being suspended for a one-year period.

Should the 26-year-old be the subject of any further breaches in that time he will be made to serve the original sentence.
