Some of these players were asked to disembark from the plane meant to fly them out to India on Monday.

Meanwhile, the team has been ratified by Sports Minister Dayasiri Jayasekera after an initial confusion that led to the stopping of nine players departing for India.

"The selectors had made the selection on the first [of December] but as they were unable to come to a final decision on the inclusion of certain players, the squad was delayed in being sent to me", Jayasekera told ESPNcricinfo. As per the early reports, the Sri Lankan team was called back from the airport as the Sri Lanka Cricket board CEO and secretary haven't approved the team for limited overs series yet.

Thisara Perera (Captain), Upul Tharanga, Danushka Gunathilaka, Asela Gunaratne, Chaturanga de Silva, Sachith Pathirana, Akila Dananjaya, Dushmantha Chameera and Nuwan Pradeep were to leave the country yesterday.

However, after reaching the airport, the team had to return, as the team was not granted approval by the Ministry of Sports.

"I have nothing against the players".

Wicketkeeper-batsman Kusal Perera, who has not appeared in worldwide cricket since an injury he sustained in the Champions Trophy, has been recalled in the 16-man Sri Lanka squad for the three-match ODI series against India, beginning on December 10 at the Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association (HPCA) stadium, Dharamsala. "If I allowed them to go, I am setting a precedent here", he added. "Left-arm spinner Sachith Pathirana had even boarded the flight, but they were told to go back home as the team didn't have the approval of the minister of sports", a cricket official had told Cricbuzz.
