Lahiru Kumara, Binura Fernando and Akila Dananjaya have been named in Sri Lanka’s last 15-man crew for the forthcoming ICC Men’s T20 Cricket World Cup 2021. The threesome was at first named in Sri Lanka’s stores who were to go with the crew as injury cover.
In any case, on Sunday (October 10), Sri Lanka Cricket declared their last crew, leaving out Kamindu Mendis, Nuwan Pradeep, Praveen Jayawickrama, Minod Bhanuka, Ashen Bandara, Lakshan Sandakan and Ramesh Mendis from the 19-man crew they had named before. Among the four save players named at first, Pulina Tharanga passes up a major opportunity without any stores named this time around.
The significant exclusions from the crew are Niroshan Dickwella, Kusal Mendis and Danushka Gunathilaka, who were restricted for a year for breaking the Covid-19 conventions on their visit through England in July.
Sri Lanka will start their mission on October 18 versus Namibia in Abu Dhabi. They have a place with Group A, close by Ireland and the Netherlands.
