Quotes

The incident under investigation took place as the two players walked back after the match with the video footage showing Shehzad telling Dilshan "if you are a non-Muslim and you turn Muslim, no matter whatever you do in your life, straight to heaven"
He also called for strict action against Shehzad, saying, "Not only has such an incident never happened to us, we could never even dream that it could happen to a fellow player. Strict action will have to be taken against him."
"Not really worried about Lasith and Kule," Sri Lanka skipper Angelo Mathews said. "For example, if Kumar Sangakkara or [Tillakaratne Dilshan or Mahela Jayawardene fail in a couple of innings, we're not going to throw them out because we know the class that they have in themselves."
"If he gets a flight on Friday then he will miss the first one-day (match) but we are trying to get him back by August 26 in time for the next game a day later in Colombo" Khan told AFP
