Sri Lanka Cricket Team Getting Strengthened
The Sri Lanka Cricket Council has announced a one-day series team against India.
Accordingly, leading players Kusal Janith Perera and Asela Gunaratne who have not been in the squad for a long time have been retaken into the team.
Kusal Perera was injured during the Champions League match against India. Also Asela Gunaratne got injured during the Test series against India.
Now, both of them have been recovered from the discomfort and have returned to the team.
Dhananjaya De Silva and Chaturanga De Silva are included in the team and the Test team captain Dinesh Chandimal has not been included in the one-day series team.
A cricket Test match between India and Sri Lanka was repeatedly interrupted on Sunday with claims players were “continuously vomiting” due to hazardous pollution levels in the Indian capital.
commentators said it was the first recorded instance of an international match being halted due to the toxic smog that afflicts much of north India year-round but worsens to hazardous levels during winter months.
Airborne pollution levels 15 times the World Health Organisation limits confronted players on the second day of the third Test at the Feroz Shah Kotla stadium in Delhi on Sunday.
As the haze worsened, many Sri Lankan players returned from lunch wearing face masks before complaining to umpires, who halted play for 20 minutes to consult with team doctors and match officials.
The match resumed but was interrupted twice more as bowlers Lahiru Gamage and Suranga Lakmal left the field mid-over with breathing difficulties…….
