Sri Lankan cricketer suspended for alleged possession of illegal drugs

Sri Lanka fast bowler Shehan Madushanka has been suspended from all forms of cricket, after being arrested for alleged possession of illegal drugs.

The 25-year-old took a hat-trick in his first one-day international against Bangladesh in January 2018 and played two more T20 internationals on that tour, before being sidelined with injuries.

He was caught with 2.7 grams of heroin by police on Saturday and then remanded in custody until June 2, Sri Lanka police say.

"The decision to suspend will remain intact until a full inquiry is conducted by the SLC into the matter," Sri Lanka Cricket says.
