Times of India: "After the BCCI banned all who took part in the Indian Cricket League from its activities, the SLC is also doing the same. Former Sri Lankan captain Marvan Atapattu, who was seen and heard during the Asia Cup as a member of the commentary team, will not be allowed to do any commentary when Sri Lanka will be playing at home."
