Sri Lanka Cricket on Sunday night announced that it had decided to suspend Danushka Gunathilaka from all forms of International cricket for breaching "player code of conduct".
 
The SLC statement did not specifically mention the reason for the pending suspension.
 
It said, "The decision to suspend the player was taken following an initial inquiry conducted by Sri Lanka Cricket after the team management reported that the player has violated the Code of Conduct".
 
However, the story began to unfold yesterday.
 
The suspension comes after a Norwegian woman had accused Gunathilaka's friend of allegedly raping her in a hotel room where Gunathilaka was also present.
 
It was reported that Gunathilaka and his friend took two Norwegian women to the hotel where the player was staying in Colombo in the early hours of Sunday (Jul 22).
 
One of the women later accused the second man, a British passport-holder of Sri Lankan origin, of raping her.
 
Later police arrested the 26-year-old suspect.
 
The Norwegian woman had made the complaint of rape to the police unit at the Bandaranaike International Airport.
 
The woman had undergone a medical test and the case had been transferred to Colpetty Police.
 
Meanwhile, the police said that it will not press charges against the Sri Lankan opening batsman relating to the allege rape case.
