Sri Lanka Test captain Dimuth Karunaratne has reportedly been arrested following a drink driving incident on Sunday morning.

Karunaratne was allegedly in inebriated state when he crashed into a three-wheeler in Borella leaving the driver of the vehicle injured.

The driver was hospitalised after sustaining minor injuries. As per ESPNcricinfo, Karunaratne was taken into custody around 5:40 am Sri Lanka time on Sunday and was later released on bail. He will appear in court in the coming week.

The 30-year-old top order batsman recently led Sri Lanka to a historic Test series win in Sri Lanka.

The result meant that despite last playing an ODI in 2015, there have been speculations of him being appointed captain for Sri Lanka’s World Cup campaign as well.

Karunaratne has played in 60 Tests, scoring 4074 runs at 36.05 alongside eight centuries and 22 fifties. In 17 ODIs, the last of which came in March 2015, the left-handed batsman has scored 190 runs at 15.83 including one half-century.
