SL ODI squad for India sent back from Colombo Airport: Reports

Agencies, Colombo

Nine Sri Lankan players were sent back from the Colombo Airport to their homes while heading to India for the upcoming ODI series after Sports Minister refused their approval.

According to reports the country’s sports minister had not approved of the squad. Sports Minister Dayasiri Jayasekara had apparently said that it was impossible for him to approve a team at such short notice.

As per reports, the players stopped from leaving were led by newly appointed captain Thisara Perrera, Upul Tharanga, Danushka Gunathilaka, Asela Gunaratne, Chathuranga de Silva, Sachith Pathirana, Dushmantha Chameera, Suranga Lakmal and Nuwan Pradeep.
