Five players including Kusal Mendis released from Sri Lanka squad
Five Sri Lankan cricketers who were part of the test squad for the England series in Galle, have been released from the bio-bubble introduced in view of the coronavirus pandemic.
Kusal Mendis, Nuwan Pradeep, Minod Bhanuka, and Lahiru Kumara have been permitted to head home, alongside skipper Dimuth Karunaratne who has been ruled out for the second test due to an injury.
Two more Sri Lankan cricketers will reportedly be released from the squad on the first day of the second test, which gets underway in Galle on Friday (22).
Sri Lanka lost the first test against England, also played in Galle, by seven wickets yesterday. (NewsWire)
