The Sri Lanka Cricket Board (SLC) has revoked Danushka Gunathilaka, Kusal Mendis, and Niroshan Dickwella's one-year ban from international matches.

The trio was suspended in July of last year for violating the team's bio-bubble rules while on tour in England.

The players were seen outside their official team hotel in Durham in a video released on social media.

"Sri Lanka Cricket has decided to lift the one-year suspension imposed on the above three players from playing international cricket, across all three formats, with immediate effect," the board said in a statement Friday.

"However, the lifted suspension will remain suspended for a period of two years, during which the three players' conduct will be closely monitored by the SLC."

Sri Lanka are due to host Zimbabwe in three one-day internationals from Jan. 16-21.
