Profile

Gamini Dissanayake was one of the umpires who was pulled up by the Sri Lankan board following a sting operation by an Indian television channel over illegal payments for influencing first-class games. Dissanayake had been the fourth umpire in many international matches, though he hadn't been one of the main officials.
