The BBC is reporting that the Sri Lanka batsman Upul Tharanga has failed a random drugs test.

The 26-year-old returned a positive sample following a Cricket World Cup match.

But the International Cricket Council has yet to confirm whether Tharanga has failed a doping test.

Tharanga is not a part of the team currently touring England.
