Sri Lankan international cricketer Danushka Gunathilaka has been refused bail by a Sydney magistrate after he was charged with raping a woman in the city.
Gunathilaka, who is in Australia for the T20 World Cup, was arrested at his central Sydney hotel in the early hours of Sunday and refused bail by a court later that day.
The left-handed batsman, 31, made an application for release on Monday but it was denied by magistrate Robert Williams who noted Gunathilaka had no criminal history.
Outside court, the cricketer’s defence lawyer Ananda Amaranath called the decision “disappointing”, adding his client was considering appealing to the New South Wales supreme court.
The bail application was made in closed court after the police prosecutor was granted an order suppressing the facts of the case against the 31-year-old.
