Sri Lankan Cricket team faces a big setback ahead of Test Series against Pakistan

ISLAMABAD - Sri Lankan Cricket team faces a big setback ahead of Test Series against Pakistan.

Sri Lankan team will be without the services of their ace pacer Suranga Lakmal due to dengue. Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) Chief Exective Officer (CEO) Ashley De Silva confirmed the aforementioned development on Saturday.

“He is down with dengue and will not be travelling with the team,” said de Silva.

Right-arm pacer Asitha Fernando is likely to replace Lakmal in the Test squad.

Lakmal was part of the Sri Lanka team that was attacked by armed gunmen in 2009 in Lahore, which injured several Sri Lanka cricketers.
