It is reported that the Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) is responsible for this situatio.

The islanders are now involved in a three-Test rubber against India. However, the contest is marred by air pollution issues as the visitors wore masks while playing. Sri Lanka has a poor record in limited overs format this year with a 4-21 win-loss record in ODIs.

In an unprecedented development, the Sports Minister, Dayasiri Jayasekera last night had ordered all nine Sri Lanka ODI players heading to India for the Limited Over leg of the current series to return home as they were leaving the country without his approval.

Though the procedure was such, approval of the Sports Minister was not taken for the ODI team against India.
