Police allegations against Sri Lankan cricketer Danushka Gunathilaka, who is accused of choking and sexually assaulting a woman he met on Tinder, can be revealed after the media won a fight in court as police attempted to suppress details of the case.
The international cricket star had matched with a woman on the dating app just days before they met on November 2, before police allege 31-year-old would go on to choke and assault the woman in her own home.
The pair spent the night in Sydney’s CBD before heading back to the woman’s house around 11pm, where the woman asked to “take it slow”.

But according to court documents, Mr Gunathilaka allegedly “forced himself” on top of the 29-year-old woman and refused to use a condom.
