Kusal Mendis, a cricketer of Sri Lanka has been held by police. It is on Sunday after his vehicle has killed a 64-year-old cyclist at around 5 am. He was driving the vehicle.

The 74-year old passerby kicked the bucket immediately, right off the bat in the daybreak, as announced by the police. Mendis, the 25-year-old was driving an SUV when the episode occurred at Pandura. Mendis will be delivered before an officer later on Sunday.

The police media unit affirmed the mishap had happened in Panadura, only south of Colombo, and that the casualty had been a nearby inhabitant who continued genuine wounds and kicked the bucket as he was being admitted to emergency clinic. Mendis, likely in the following 48 hours, will show up before the Panadura justice. In the meantime, the police lead an examination.

The police proclamation made no notice of either the casualties were affected by liquor or about Mendis.

Mendis was permitted to be out and about at that point, as Sri Lanka’s lockdowns and check in time have now stopped. He had been a part of Sri Lanka’s preparing camp which finished on Wednesday, at Pallekele.

Mendis has taken part in Sri Lanka’s cricket games in 44 Tests matches, 76 ODIs and 26 T20Is games. He has 2995 runs, 2164 runs and 484 runs in his name in the three formats. Additionally, Mendis has nine universal tons to his name alongside 28 half-hundreds of years.

For Mendis, things aren’t getting any better

Things have just turned sour for Sri Lankan Cricket. Recently, people have made claims of match-fixing in the 2011 World Cup. Sports Minister has made these claims. And then the capture of Shehan Madushanka, who had possession of disallowed drugs.

It is accepted that street mishaps murder upwards of 3,000 individuals yearly in Sri Lanka. Likewise, previous Lankan leg-spinner Kaushal Lokuarchchi was given a four-year suspended prison sentence for lethally colliding with a person on foot who murdered her in 2003.
