Batsman Kusal Janith Perera, who was named in the 15 member squad to take part in the upcoming T20 games against Bangladesh has been ruled out of the two games of the shortest format, following medical advice.
According to medical advice, Perera needs more time to recover from the side strain, which he suffered during the 2nd match Sri Lanka played against Zimbabwe in the concluded ODI Tri-Series in Bangladesh, which the Lankans became the Champions.
Kusal Janith Perera did not leave with the T20 players, who left the country yesterday.
Kusal Mendis will replace Kusal Janith Perera.
