Sri Lanka stars Kumar Sangakkara and Mahela Jayawardene are facing disciplinary action for their public criticism of cricket board officials in a dispute over their retirement from Twenty20 internationals.

Sri Lanka Cricket said in a statement on Tuesday that it decided to refer the "unsubstantiated statements" of the players to the disciplinary committee.

Sangakkara and Jayawardene, on their return home from the World Twenty20 triumph in Bangladesh this month, hit out at board officials who criticised them for announcing their retirement from the shortest format of the game to the media before discussing it with officials.
