Dushmantha Chameera of Sri Lanka has been ruled out of the second Test
Dushmantha Chameera of Sri Lanka has been ruled out of the second Test against India. From March 12, it will be a day-night affair with a pink ball at Bengaluru’s M Chinnaswamy Stadium. Chameera did not appear in the initial Test match at Mohali. Sri Lanka is already 0-1 down in the series after losing the opening game by an innings and 222 runs.
Regarding Chameera, it has been claimed that his workload is being monitored, despite the fact that a significant amount of cricket is scheduled to be played in the near future. He is also a part of the forthcoming Indian Premier League (IPL), which will begin on March 26. He will join the Lucknow Super Giants after being acquired by the franchise for INR 2 crore.
The Sri Lankan squad has been urged by the medical panel to manage Dushmantha Chameera’s workload, according to sources. Additionally, it has been advised that Chameera play just white-ball cricket till the forthcoming T20 World Cup in Australia later this year. A 50-over World Cup will also be held in India next year.
Although it is unknown whether the pace bowler was in contention to play the Bangalore day-night Test, it appears doubtful that he will play any red-ball cricket in the coming months.
