The incident happened in the 85th over of Sri Lanka's first innings when the left-handed batsman stood his ground for a prolonged period of time before leaving the crease while shaking his head after being adjudged caught behind by Wriddhiman Saha off Ishant Sharma.

Following the draw of stumps on the third day's play at P Sara Oval, Thirimanne admitted the offence and accepted the sanction proposed by match referee Andy Pycroft. As such, there was no need for a formal hearing.

The charge was laid by on-field umpires Bruce Oxenford and Rod Tucker and third umpire Ruchira Palliyaguruge. All Level 1 breaches carry a minimum penalty of an official reprimand and/or a maximum penalty of 50 per cent of a player's match fee.
