Dickwella replaces Chandimal in Asia Cup squad

Dinesh Chandimal has been ruled out of Asia Cup 2018 after failing to recover from a fracture to his right middle finger. He sustained the injury during the recent domestic T20 tournament. Wicketkeeper-batsman Niroshan Dickwella, who was among five standby players, has replaced Chandimal in the 16-member squad.

Dickwella was one of the standout players during the South Africa tour and his exclusion from the initial squad was a surprise. The 25-year-old has been out of Sri Lanka’s T20I team since their tour of Bangladesh in February. He played in last month’s domestic T20 tournament, but managed just 24 runs in four innings. Sri Lanka are scheduled to play Bangladesh in the tournament opener on 15th of this month, before facing Afghanistan on 17th.
