By India Today Web Desk: The International Cricket Committee (ICC) confirmed as many as 4 injury replacements for teams in the lead-up to the Super 12 stage of the T20 World Cup 2022. Asia Cup champions have lost two players, including star pacer Dushmantha Chameera, due to injury while pre-tournament favourites England have lost Reece Topley due to an injury.

Even as Sri Lanka captain Dasun Shanka on Wednesday said the team management is unsure of Dushmantha Chameera’s availability for the remainder of the T20 World Cup after he picked up a calf injury during their win over UAE on Monday, the ICC confirmed Sri Lanka named pacer Kasun Rajitha as the top pacer’s replacement.

Chameera was in fine form, jolting the UAE team by picking up 3 wickets. The right-arm pacer was ruled out of Asia Cup due to an injury on his left leg during practice but the pacer proved his fitness to make the 15-man squad for the World Cup.

Rajitha, who has played only 10 T20Is for Sri Lanka, last played for the islanders in 2019. Meanwhile, Sri Lanka also lost batter Dhanushka Gunathilaka due to a hamstring injury. Travelling reserve Ashen Bandara replaces him in the 15-man squad.

Sri Lanka, who were shocked by Namibia, will take on the Netherlands in their final Round 1 match on Friday in Geelong.

“Rajitha is currently in Sri Lanka and will be travelling to Australia as soon as possible,” the ICC said in a statement.

TYMAL MILLS JOINS ENGLAND SQUAD

In the United Arab Emirates squad, the travelling reserve Fahad Nawaz has replaced Zawar Farid who has fractured his left foot. Finally, England’s Tymal Mills who is already in Australia comes in for Reece Topley who has an injured left ankle.

The replacement of a player requires the approval of the Event Technical Committee before the replacement player can be officially added to the squad.
