Karunaratne and Mendis have been let go for various causes. Karunaratne, the common Test captain, has not sufficiently recovered from a finger fracture suffered on the tour of South Africa, the place he sustained a blow throughout his second-innings hundred on the Wanderers. Mendis, in the meantime, has been omitted as a result of a poor kind – he has 4 consecutive geese and a 15 in his 5 most-recent innings. Roshen Silva is among the many batsmen vying to exchange him.
Additionally launched from the squad had been quick bowlers Lahiru Kumara and Nuwan Pradeep, in addition to reserve wicketkeeper-batsman Minod Chanuka. With Sri Lanka hoping that Suranga Lakmal can be matched for the second Test, no different frontline seamers could also be required – the popular technique being to play three spinners and one fast. From the fast-bowling contingent, Asitha Fernando (who performed the primary Test), Vishwa Fernando, and Dushmantha Chameera stay with the squad.
The second Test in opposition to England begins in Galle on Friday. Sri Lanka lost the primary match by seven wickets.
