According to a press release issued by the International Cricket Council (ICC), Chameera had suffered an injury to his left leg while the team was practising.
A leg injury suffered by fast bowler Dushmantha Chameera on Monday caused him to be removed from Sri Lanka’s Asia Cup squad. This was a significant setback for the island nation’s chances of doing well in the continental competition. According to a press release issued by the International Cricket Council (ICC), Chameera had suffered an injury to his left leg while the team was practising. In the 18-man squad, Nuwan Thushara has taken his spot after he was replaced. On Saturday, Sri Lanka revealed their team, but left out players who are still recovering from injuries, such as Binura Fernando and Kasun Rajitha.
Dilshan Madushanka, Pramod Madushan, Asitha Fernando, and Matheesha Pathirana are the only players in Sri Lanka’s fast-bowling squad with T20I caps to their names. Thusara, who is replacing Matheesha Pathirana, has only participated in a small number of T20 Internationals.
Thusara, who is now 28 years old and made his debut in February of this year, has appeared in four Twenty20 Internationals and has taken two wickets.
In the Asia Cup, Sri Lanka is placed in Group B, and their opening match of the tournament will take place on August 27 against Afghanistan in Dubai. On September 1st, they will compete against Bangladesh in their second encounter.
Sri Lanka squad for Asia Cup: Dasun Shanaka (capt), Danushka Gunathilaka, Pathum Nissanka, Kusal Mendis, Charith Asalanka, Bhanuka Rajapaksa, Ashen Bandara, Dhananjaya de Silva, Wanindu Hasaranga, Maheesh Theekshana, Jeffrey Vandersay, Praveen Jayawickrama, Chamika Karunaratne, Dilshan Madushanka, Matheesha Pathirana, Nuwanidu Fernando, Nuwan Thushara, Dinesh Chandimal.
