Dushmantha Chameera and Lahiru Kumara in Sri Lanka’s T20 World Cup squad, subject to fitness

Dushmantha Chameera and Lahiru Kumara have been included in Sri Lanka’s squad for the T20 World Cup, subject to fitness tests. Injuries had kept both fast bowlers out of the recently concluded Asia Cup, which Sri Lanka had won with a fast-bowling attack that was entirely uncapped prior to the tournament.

Of the four specialist fast bowlers who played the Asia Cup, Dilshan Madushanka and Pramod Madushan have kept their places in the squad, while Asitha Fernando and Matheesha Pathirana have been left out.

Batters Dinesh Chandimal, Ashen Bandara and Nuwanidu Fernando, and left-arm spinner Praveen Jayawickrama, who were all part of the Asia Cup squad, have been included among the reserves for the World Cup, alongside the left-arm quick Binura Fernando.
