The International Cricket Council (ICC) is likely to look into Sri Lanka’s captaincy switch in their match against England.
Regular captain Mahela Jayawardene handed over to former skipper Kumar Sangakkara to avoid the threat of a ban because of slow over rates. The hosts were fined for slow over rate during their match against West Indies and under ICC rules Jayawardene will face a one-match suspension if Sri Lanka infringe again in the next 12 months under his captaincy.
Jayawardene continued to take the decisions on the field on Monday, although Sangakkara went in for the toss with England captain Stuart Broad, starting a debate whether or not the move was against the spirit of the game.
On Tuesday the ICC said all playing conditions and conduct would be reviewed after the tournament.
