Injured Chandimal out of India ODI series

Injured Chandimal out of India ODI series”

Tharanga was previously served a similar two-match suspension during the ICC Champions Trophy.

The squad: Chamara Kapugedera (capt.), Dinesh Chandimal, Lahiru Thirimanna, Angelo Mathews, Niroshan Dickwella (wk), Danushka Gunathilaka, Kusal Mendis, Chamara Kapugedera, Milinda Siriwardana, Malinda Pushpakumara, Akila Dananjaya, Lakshan Sandakan, Thisara Perera, Wanindu Hasaranga, Lasith Malinga, Dushmantha Chameera, Vishwa Fernando, Upul Tharanga (for fifth ODI).

Chandimal, who was playing his first match of the series on Sunday, sustained the injury while negotiating a bouncer from fast bowler Hardik Pandya.India won the day-night game, the third of five matches in the series, by six wickets to take an unassailable 3-0 lead. Gunatilaka landed heavily on his right shoulder while fielding and could be ruled out for the rest of the series.

"The main reason for appointing Kapu as the captain is because he was actually Upul's deputy in the first two matches, and we wanted to stick with him, rather than bringing someone from outside", Sri Lanka's cricket manager Asanka Gurusinha said. "He's also respected in the team".

Sri Lanka will play the remaining two ODI matches against India this Thursday and Sunday, and a one-off Twenty20 match against the visitors on September 6.

Sri Lanka's cricket selectors resigned en masse Tuesday, days after fans hurled abuse and projectiles at the beleaguered national side as they suffered another humiliating thrashing on home soil.

Thirimanne, who made his last worldwide ODI appearance in January 2016, has appeared in a 107 ODIs for the country and is expected to provide good experience to the batting group. Thirimanne has fulfilled the role of an opening batsman with some success in the past: he averages 38.94 after 19 innings. His ODI average was above 40 in 2015 and 2014.
