Sri Lankan opener and Captain Dimuth Karunaratne arrested for Drunk Driving accident issue. Despite he arrested but police released him on Bail as well.
Dimuth Karunaratne arrested
According to the statement of Borella police, Dimuth Karunaratne was driving a three-wheeler at around 5:30 am in the local time and committed a clash. Accordingly, police found him red-handed in the driving seat and had to arrest him at once. Karunaratne will now appear in court on Monday as the police conduct further investigations. The police also confirmed that the driver of the three-wheeler suffered only minor injuries.
Accordingly, we know that Sri Lanka won a test series from a horrid tour in New Zealand and Australia. Then Sri Lanka cricket brought him in Captaincy and he made the test series 2-0. Though Sri Lanka lost both ODI and T-20 these were not under his captaincy.
Cricket Sri Lanka asserts on the issue

In the meantime, Sri Lanka Cricket will also follow the due process as per his ‘Player Contractual Obligation’ with the organization and conduct an inquiry in order to take necessary action.”
Therefore, Sri Lankan opener and Captain Dimuth Karunaratne arrested for Drunk Driving accident issue. Hope Dimuth Karunaratne will return to open again
