Sri Lanka Cricket announced on Monday that they have included left-arm wrist spinner Lakshan Sandakan and fast bowler Chamika Karunaratne for the second Test against Bangladesh scheduled to begin next week.

“Lakshan Sandakan and Chamika Karunaratne have been named by the Cricket Selection Committee, as the replacements for Lahiru Kumara and Dilshan Madushanka, who will not take further part in the ongoing test series against Bangladesh owing to injury,” SLC said in a statement on Monday. Both Sandakan and Karunaratne joined the team (Monday) today after going through the required health protocols. Lahiru was ruled out earlier while Madhushanka picked up an injury while practicing in national nets.
