Sri Lanka suspended batsman Danushka Gunathilaka from all forms of cricket before the decisive fourth day of their second Test against South Africa because of a breach of their players' code of conduct.

A police official said the alleged incident took place in the early hours of Sunday morning.

Sri Lanka won the Test in Colombo by 199 runs to complete a series victory.
