Dambulla - Sri Lanka captain Kumar Sangakkara has been cleared of improper conduct by the ICC after being accused of deliberately colliding with New Zealand offspinner Nathan McCullum during a ODI.

Sangakkara was attempting to take a second run in an over bowled by McCullum when the incident took place Friday. Australian match referee Alan Hurst said Saturday that video footage during the tri-series match raised reasonable doubt the collision was deliberate.
