SRI Lanka cricket team management have raised concerns over alleged tampering of the ball by Australian players in the Hobart Test match.

Team manager Charith Senanayake said it was the tourists' understanding that ICC match-referee Chris Broad had begun investigations after raising concerns with Broad following play on day three.

The International Cricket Council released a statement this morning saying Broad has been made aware of a claims against Australian players, though no official complaint had been made by Sri Lanka.

A still picture of alleged ball-tampering has been making the rounds on social media, but neither Sri Lanka or the ICC have named specific players.

Senanayake has spoken of two incidents - one early in Sri Lanka's first innings and later in the 88th over. Footage obtained by Sri Lankan hierarchy appears to show Australia tampering with the ball on at least two occasions.
