Sri Lanks’s ace fast bowler was involved in a road accident earlier this week which resulted in the death of a 28 year-old motorcyclist.

Kulasekara who was arrested following the incident was released on bail, Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) said.

“Preliminary inquiries have revealed that Mr Kulasekara was returning to Colombo from Kandy, when the unfortunate motorcycle rider who was travelling in the opposite direction had lost control of his bike whilst trying to overtake a bus and got flung into Mr Kulasekara’s path,” the SLC said in a release.

Kulasekara, 34, retired from Test cricket in June in order to focus on his limited-overs career.
