Shehan Madushanka has been detained by the police over alleged possession of drugs.
Shehan Madushanka of the Sri Lankan team has been detained after it has been reported that he had been carrying over two grams of heroin on his car. His car had been stopped by the policemen in the town of Pannala as he had violated the nationwide curfew. The drug, however, was determined on Monday.
With that, the magistrate decided to order two-week custody for the player before he is produced before the High Court. Sri Lanka Cricket, however, understands the development of the situation but hasn’t decided to issue an official statement yet.
Madushanka may best be recalled when he had claimed a hat-trick on his ODI debut against Bangladesh in 2018. Aside from that, he had also played for two T20Is for the same tour. He has not represented the national side again after that because of an injury which ruled him out. To learn more about cricket formats, check out Betwala.
