New Delhi: Dimuth Karunaratne, Sri Lanka's Test captain was arrested in Colombo on Sunday for drunk driving, following which the player has issued a public apology on Monday and has described his own attitude as "utterly unbecoming of a Sri Lankan national cricketer".

The player tweeted his full apology which reads: "You may be aware of some disturbing news which occurred last morning! The vehicle I was driving back home, unfortunately, met with a minor accident in Colombo.

"I firstly need to apologize to the owner of the other vehicle who had a few very minor injuries and was absolutely decent in his manner to very amicably sort out the matter directly with me.

"As I type I am very pleased to note and would like to inform all of you that he has been discharged from the hospital where he was under precautionary observation and is now resting at home.

"Rest assured that my moral obligation towards his betterment and well been will be well looked after and that's guaranteed," Karunaratne tweeted.
