Dushmantha Chameera likely to miss first Test against India
Fast bowler Dushmantha Chameera is expected to miss Sri Lanka's first Test against India in Galle from August 12th to 16th because he has not recovered fully from a side strain that kept him out of the third Test against Pakistan and the five-match ODI series.
Chameera had bowled Sri Lanka to victory in the second Test against Pakistan at the P Sara Oval last month with a match haul of four wickets on debut, but suffered a side strain which has kept him out of international cricket since.
Chameera's pace troubled the Pakistan batsmen and Wahab Riaz was sent home with a fractured wrist after being hit during the second Test.
Sri Lanka's fast bowling coach Champaka Ramanayake said that 23-year-old Chameera was the most exciting fast-bowling find he had come across since Lasith Malinga.
