AFG vs SL: Why is Lahiru Kumara not playing today?

Lahiru Kumara has been ruled out of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 due to a thigh injury. This unfortunate injury has forced Sri Lanka to make a change in their squad, bringing in Dushmantha Chameera as his replacement.

Lahiru Kumara’s absence will undoubtedly be felt by the Sri Lankan team. He played a pivotal role in their recent match against England, where his exceptional performance earned him the well-deserved title of Player of the Match. Kumara’s contributions with the ball were vital to securing the victory.

To fill the void left by Kumara’s absence, Sri Lanka has called upon Dushmantha Chameera. Chameera is no stranger to international cricket and is known for his pace and ability to make breakthroughs with the ball. His inclusion in the squad brings a fresh perspective and an additional pace option to the Sri Lankan bowling attack.
