COLOMBO - A Sri Lankan court has convicted a 21-year-old man who broke into the hotel rooms of two Australian cricketers and offered them sex during the ongoing World Twenty20, police said on Friday.

The Sri Lankan, named as Abdul Karim, was fined 1,000 rupees ($7.6) and handed a one-month suspended jail term after he pleaded guilty on Thursday to a charge of breaking and entering.

The man breached supposedly tight security last Monday at the luxury Cinnamon Grand hotel in central Colombo where the Australian team were staying ahead of their game against India on Friday. "The man had gone into a player's room offering his services as a male escort," a police officer said.
