Sri Lanka vs Afghanistan ODI Series: A three-match ODI series is being played between Afghanistan and Sri Lanka. The Sri Lankan team had won the first ODI match with a bang by 42 runs. But now bad news has come for the Sri Lankan team. Sri Lankan team’s star fast bowler Dushmantha Chameera is injured. For this reason he has been ruled out of the second ODI match. A star player has got a chance in his place.

This player got a chance

Dushmantha will not play Chameera in the second ODI against Afghanistan. Asitha Fernando has been included in the team in her place. Chameera limped off the field midway through his eighth over during Sri Lanka’s 42-run win in the first ODI. He had taken two wickets at that time. It has now been confirmed that he has injured his left quadriceps.

I was injured last year also

According to the report of ESPNcricinfo, this injury is not related to any of his previous injuries. Last year, he missed some of Sri Lanka’s matches due to a muscle injury and before that he had also undergone surgery for an ankle injury. He has been sent to a specialist in the UK for scans and better treatment. Chameera has taken 56 wickets in 52 ODI matches for Sri Lanka.

Played only five matches for the team

Sri Lankan team manager Mahinda Halangoda said that he is feeling better now, but until we get answers from the specialist. Till then we will not be able to get the exact information about his injury. Asitha Fernando, who was included in the team in place of Dushmantha Chameera, played her last ODI match against Afghanistan in the year 2022. He has played a total of 5 ODI matches and has taken only one wicket.
