Injuries, fitness, Covid force Sri Lanka to pick uncapped players for Zimbabwe ODIs – Social News XYZ

Injuries, fitness, Covid force Sri Lanka to pick uncapped players for Zimbabwe ODIs

Colombo, Jan 13 (SocialNews.XYZ) Hampered by injuries, fitness failures and Covid-19 pandemic, Sri Lanka will face Zimbabwe with several uncapped players in the first one-day International of their three-match series on Sunday (January 16).

Sri Lanka Cricket’s (SLC) Selection Committee on Thursday announced the squad for the three ODIs to be played on January 16, 18, and 21 at the Pallekele International Cricket Stadium.


Sri Lanka will miss ace spinner Wanindu Hasaranga due to a hamstring tear, which he sustained during the Lanka Premier League (LPL), while batter Kusal Janith Perera too will be absent due to an injury.

Three players — star-batman Avishka Fernando, Janith Liyanage, and Kamil Mishara — have been ruled out from the series after being infected with Covid-19, while pacer Lahiru Kumara and Kalana Perera were removed from the squad as they had failed to fulfill the newly upgraded ‘fitness standards’. Dhananjaya De Silva, named vice-captain of the initial team, is on paternity leave and will miss the three ODIS.

In place of these established players, the selectors have called in former captain Dinesh Chandimal, Nuwan Pradeep, Shiran Fernando, Kamindu Mendis, and Kusal Mendis, who was recently freed from a one-year ban imposed over the breach of bio-bubble protocols in England last July.

The squad includes Dasun Shanaka (captain), PathumNissanka, Minod Bhanuka, Dinesh Chandimal, Kusal Mendis, Charith Asalanka, Chamika Karunaratne, Maheesh Theekshana, Jeffrey Vandersay, Nuwan Thushara, Ramesh Mendis, Praveen Jayawickrama, Dushmantha Chameera, Chamika Gunasekera, Nuwan Pradeep, Shiran Fernando, and Kamindu Mendis

In addition, six other players — Ashen Bandara, PulinaTharanga, Nimesh Vimukthi, Ashian Daniel, Asitha Fernando, and Vishwa Fernando have been kept as standby. The SLC said the squad was released subjected to the approval of Sports Minister Namal Rajapaksa.

ICC approves player replacement for Zimbabwe in U-19 CWC

Dubai, Jan 22 (SocialNews.XYZ) The International Cricket Council (ICC) has approved Aisha Chianda as replacement for Victor Chirwa in the Zimbabwe squad after the latter was suspended from bowling in international cricket because of an illegal action.

The Event Panel of the ongoing Under-19 Men’s Cricket World Cup in the West Indies, which comprised members of the ICC Panel of Human Movement Specialists, had confirmed Chirwa of using an illegal bowling action on January 20.


“The ICC has confirmed that the Event Technical Committee of the ICC U19 Men’s Cricket World Cup 2022 has approved Aisha Chianda as a replacement for Victor Chirwa in the Zimbabwe squad,” ICC informed on Saturday.

“Chirwa, who was suspended from bowling in international cricket following confirmation that he was using an illegal bowling action, will now be replaced by Chianda. The replacement of a player requires the approval of the Event Technical Committee before the replacement player can be officially added to the squad,” ICC said.

The Event Technical Committee consists of the Chair Chris Tetley (ICC Head of Events), Ben Leaver (ICC Senior Event Manager), Fawwaz Baksh (Tournament Director) Roland Holder (CWI Representative) Alan Wilkins and Russel Arnold (both independent representatives).
