Sri Lankan attacking left-hand batsman Danushka Gunathilaka has been suspended from all forms of International Cricket after he was allegedly charged of being a rape accused. The decision to suspend the 27-year old batsman came from the end of Sri Lankan Cricket (SLC) association.
It has been reported that, the decision came at the end of third day play in the second and final test between Sri Lanka and South Africa at the Sinhalese Sports Club in Colombo on July 22. Raising the issue, the SLC statement says, “The decision to suspend the player was taken following an initial inquiry conducted by Sri Lanka Cricket after the team management reported that the player had violated the ‘Code of Conduct’.”
Sources said, “Danushka and his friend took two Norwegian women to their hotel room in Colombo on early hours of Sunday morning. One of the women later lodged a complaint accusing the second man who was a Sri Lankan origin holding British passport.” Police later arrested him.
