Sri Lanka Cricket said on Monday that batsman Danushka Gunathilaka has been suspended following his arrest in Australia on four counts of sexual assault.

The 31-year-old, who was in Australia for the T20 World Cup, was suspended “from all forms of the game with immediate effect,” according to the local governing body of the sport.

Furthermore, Sri Lanka Cricket will take the required procedures to conduct an investigation into the claimed offence as soon as possible, and if the aforementioned court case in Australia is concluded, steps will be made to penalise the said player if found guilty,” it stated.

The board also stated that it “adopts a ‘zero tolerance’ policy for any such behaviour by a player and would provide all necessary cooperation to Australian law enforcement authorities to conduct an impartial investigation into the event.”
