    He might even be appointed Captain of SL Team ?

    DJ Sunday, 24 December 2023 08:27 PM

    Absolutely

    He is better than the beach bum haired spinner Thursday, 28 December 2023 02:45 PM

    Danny is more suited than anyone else in the team. Beach boy spin bowler is apparently demanding captaincy to play for country, but coaches and selection committee must ignore that over-tired big mouth.

    Welcome! From a different Ball game!

    Mahila Saturday, 23 December 2023 05:36 AM

    "From a DIFFERENT BALL GAME!" I thought insistence of "wearing condom" segregated that part of 'Important segment of Anatomy' playing any significant role in the act except "Ringing the Bell" and aiding stimulation, before eventual system Collapse!!??

    Sri Lanka Crooked (SLC)

    Very good move. But every sportsmen in the country should maintain very high standard of discipline hereafter

    Dam Friday, 22 December 2023 06:26 PM

    That's very good. Hopefully he may have learnt a lesson.

    Reply to Dam Friday, 22 December 2023 06:52 PM

    He never learns this is not his first offence with sexual misconduct this guy has been like this even in 2016 also to a Norwegian woman and remember it was only there was no consent he did it so yeah a international lifetime ban will suffice

    Ravishan Friday, 22 December 2023 07:12 PM

    His action has brought disrepute to the nation. And it's not the first instance.

    Siripala Friday, 22 December 2023 07:20 PM

    Shame on SSC. It is a gentleman's game (used to be).

    Johan Friday, 22 December 2023 09:02 PM

    This fellow is Keheliya's man

    AIA Friday, 22 December 2023 09:10 PM

    This is a disgrace.

    mario Friday, 22 December 2023 09:33 PM

    he is not going to get visa again to Australia or UK again

    Tissa Fernando Friday, 22 December 2023 10:07 PM

    Good luck, everyone who appears as saints and who also comment here as saints , commit adultery and they are OK with it, in his case he played with the wrong person. So , if everyone else is allowed to be a normal person then he is also entitled to it.

    Female Saturday, 23 December 2023 11:01 AM

    You are certainly not normal.

    Tissa Fernando Friday, 22 December 2023 10:07 PM

    he was selected for his talent in cricket hoping to bring honor to his country and not paid by SLC for his personal pleasure outside his signed contract and should refund all expenses paid for by SLC He should be banned for all itn'li games as he has brought disgrace not only to his kith and kin and allied personnel but chiefly to his country, flag and national anthem and this stigma will always follow him like a shadow for the rest of his life Shame on SSC for continuing his membership. He should have been sacked at the time of his arrest

    Moh Sleiman Saturday, 23 December 2023 05:28 AM

    Well this is nothing new,If POLITICIANS can screw up the innocent women working in the claening dept in the PARLIAMENT,why cant a SCOUNDRLAN like DANUSHKA do it in AUSTRALIA?

    Ruben Huling Saturday, 23 December 2023 06:19 AM

    This fellow should not be in the team at all as he tarnished the image of the nation. A se..al pr....or.

    Rishan Saturday, 23 December 2023 06:43 AM

    Send him to a rehabilitation camp first as he needs to change his red head attitude.....

    Rajsoma Saturday, 23 December 2023 07:36 AM

    A drug addict ,and womanizer who disgraced the Island Nation should be banned from any form of Cricket . Its Shame for a club like prestigious SSC to have him play...Hey, he will Captain SLC soon with ministers blessing.

    Jude Saturday, 23 December 2023 07:59 AM

    Hey remember Danushka was ONLY ACCUSED AND HE WAS CLEARED BY AUSSIE COURT'S. After the unfortunate ordeal he should be able to resume his career. after the courts cleared him still some dumbass scumbags are making dumb comments here.

    Female Saturday, 23 December 2023 11:04 AM

    Where there is smoke there is fire.

    Rrishan Wednesday, 27 December 2023 07:40 AM

    God knows what he did and he will not stop his usual practices.... time will tell.....

    Jude Saturday, 23 December 2023 08:12 AM

    Any person accused of any crime is considered innocent until proven guilty!! In this case Danushka was EXONERATED BY AUSSIE COURT'S, PERIOD!!

    Pullma Dingalinga Saturday, 23 December 2023 08:28 AM

    Just keep your balls on a good length and your drive textbook.

    Sunil Saturday, 23 December 2023 12:15 PM

    Aren't these people or this rapist have no shy to face decent crowd...

    Tissa Fernando Saturday, 23 December 2023 07:19 PM

    Hello Female, Don't be so hypocric. Adultery is very common in Sri Lanka now, and it is wrong to punish one guy who has already been cleared by the foreign courts. If many do it, then why punish only one.

    Roisin Sunday, 24 December 2023 11:50 AM

    This is not about adultery, this is about rape. Also very common in Sri Lanka by the way. Very hard to proof by the woman.

    Jude Saturday, 23 December 2023 10:33 PM

    Hey @Female, put the smoke and fire in your AZZ then you'll fly like a Rocket, yeah.

    Roisin Sunday, 24 December 2023 11:47 AM

    Grow up!

    Roisin Sunday, 24 December 2023 12:07 PM

    Grow up!

    Roisin Sunday, 24 December 2023 12:27 PM

    Grow up!

    bUNGA Sunday, 24 December 2023 02:52 AM

    Everyone is talking about tarnishing countries image ..lol .. Does sri lanka have a good image at all ?? When Mahinda and other politician supported racism with the support of sinhala buddhist the country had good name ??? shameful ppl

    Old Man Thursday, 28 December 2023 08:54 PM

    The same reason that he still remains in the Cabinet. Corruption is OK as long as you support the President.
