Former Sri Lankan Cricket Captain Thilakaratne Dilshan, who was under arrest warrant for not appearing in court over a maintenance case filed against him, surrendered to court today.

Subsequently, Colombo Chief Magistrate Lal Ranasinghe Bandara recalled the arrest warrant.

The counsel, who appeared for the respondent told the Magistrate that he had mistakenly noted the next calling date therefore could not appear in court today.

The Chief Magistrate advised the respondent to appear in court on the next date. The maintenance case was put off for May 24. (Shehan Chamika Silva)

    He should have been a politician than a cricketer! Yet, it is never too late...

    During MR such non appearance was routine and tolerated if the offender is connected even remotely

    How kind this court.... the magistrate actually withdrew the arrest warrant and did not remand him for contempt of court. I wish this same attitude is applied when a simple simon like me appears in court without the ability to pay a bribe, no political connections, no friends in high places, no influence peddling.

    What a shame. Surely one match fee can cover the entire years maintenance? Just do whats right by your kids! They didnt ask to be brought into this world, it is your duty to care for them, until they can do so for themselves.
