Boon, the former Australian opener, was seen at the Sri Lankan dressing room after the second day’s play and Cricbuzz learns that an assurance had been given to study whether the conditions were suitable for a high-intensity sporting event.
Four Sri Lankan players had vomited on the second day’s play and several others needed a supply of oxygen after they complained of being short of breath, while some were administered injections. Fast bowlers Lahiru Gamage, Suranga Lakmal, top order batsman Dhananjaya de Silva and reserve Jeffrey Vandersay were the worst affected.
“The bowlers obviously were struggling. The match referee was in our change room when Suranga Lakmal started vomiting. Doctors were in there as well. We had oxygen cylinders and it was tough,” Sri Lanka’s coach Nic Pothas told journalists.
“It is an abnormal case. Match referee and umpires will file a report and we will leave it with the ICC,” Pothas added.
