Sri Lanka bowler Nuwan Kulasekara has been released on bail after he was involved in a crash in which a motorcyclist died.

Sri Lanka's cricket board said preliminary investigations suggested the motorcyclist was "flung into Mr Kulasekara's path" when he lost control while trying to overtake a bus.

It added the player was bailed "pending completion of the investigation".

Kulasekara, 34, retired from Tests in June to focus on limited-overs cricket.

He played three times for Sussex in the T20 Blast this season.
