Shehan Madushanka was arrested for possessing heroin 

 

Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) yesterday suspended pace bowler Shehan Madushanka from all forms of the game, two days after he was arrested allegedly in possession of heroin. The right-arm bowler was stopped while driving with another person in a car on Sunday and found to have two grams of the drug, police said.


SLC Secretary Mohan de Silva said they suspended the 25-year-old pending an internal disciplinary inquiry. He was remanded into custody on Monday. “We have suspended him with immediate effect and he also cannot take part in any form of the game,” de Silva said. Madushanka’s arrest was the first time a contracted player was remanded over a drug charge.


The Magistrate at Kuliyapitiya in the North-Western Province ordered him to be remanded till June 2.
The 25-year-old broke into the international scene in early 2018 with an ODI hat-trick on debut against Bangladesh, making the fourth player in one-day history to achieve the feat.


His international appearances have been limited to his debut ODI and two T20 internationals, also against Bangladesh. (Agencies)
