The passengers of a British Airways flight from St Lucia to Gatwick were panicked yesterday when the Minister's son tried to open the cabin door at 35,000ft, searching for a lavatory.
Rambukwella is a member of the Sri Lanka - A team which was in the flight after playing against the West Indies. The British Airways flight was carrying 229 passengers.
The cricketer is accused of being drunk.
Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) announced today that it wished to announce that it was disappointed to hear of a Sri Lankan player's behavior and an inquiry will be conducted based on the team manager's report.
Disciplinary action will be taken on the player concerned if found guilty, the SLC statement added.
Ramith Rambukwella, 22, is a left-hand batsman and right arm off-spin bowler who has been playing club cricket after playing for Royal College. His inclusion into Sri Lanka - A side also became a controversial matter.
