Sri Lanka Loses Dhanushka Gunathilake Too: Two Prominent Players Withdraw Even Before The Start Of Asia Cup

September 14, 2018

Sri Lanka's opener Dhanushka Gunathilake, who was in cracking form in the domestic T20 league, has withdrawn from Asia Cip due to a lower back injury . 

Gunathilake who flew to Dubai with the Sri Lankan team has returned to the country, Asian Mirror learns. 

Shehan Jayasuriya has been included in the squad as Gunathilake's replacement. 

Gunathilake was just returning to the national team after a 06 match ban due to disciplinary reasons. He is considered one of the most promising young batsmen in Sri Lanka. 

This comes after Sri Lanka lost middle order batsman Dinesh Chandimal due to an injury to his fingure .

With this unexpected development, Sri Lanka has already lost two of their prominent players even before the beginning of the series.
