Rambukwella arrested after car mishap

Sri Lanka allrounder Ramith Rambukwella has been arrested following a car accident in Colombo. Rambukwella was driving the car, which struck a wall in the early hours of Thursday. No one was hurt in the incident. He is expected to appear in court in the next 48 hours.

An offspinner who can hit the ball hard, Rambukwella, 25, has played two T20s for Sri Lanka. He debuted against New Zealand in at home in 2013, before being recalled to the squad on Sri Lanka's tour to England earlier this year.

Rambukwella was involved in a bizarre incident in July 2013, when playing for Sri Lanka A, when he was fined for causing mild panic on a flight by attempting to open the aircraft's cabin door at 35,000 feet. He has had other disciplinary problems, dating back to his time with the Under-19 team.
