Fortuitous injury creates batting line-up crater

Fortuitous injury creates batting line-up crater

The Sri Lanka camp today announced that an unfortunate injury to the right knee would see right-hand batsman Chamara Kapugedara’s CT17 campaign come to an untimely conclusion.

The 30 year old took a heavy pounding on the right knee when he landed on it awkwardly during a fielding drill this morning and radiographic investigation have revealed a Meniscal tear coupled with an acute Tendon injury.

Tournament and SLC Medical experts have recommended a supervised convalescence of two weeks, followed by a review of the injury.

Kapugedara’s solid batting performances at the recently concluded Super Provincial Tournament saw him attain a place in the CT17 side, however the batsman has not had an opportunity to show his aptitude in the Champions Trophy thus far.

Kapugedara will be replaced by 26 year old All-rounder Danushka Gunathilaka who will most likely feature in tomorrow’s game against India.
