Inclusion of Dushmantha Chameera and Wanindu Hasaranga in the World Cup Squad


Media Release

24 th November 2023

Sri Lanka Cricket wishes to reiterate that Wanindu Hasaranga and Dushmantha Chameera were included in the 15-member squad selected by the Sri Lanka Cricket Selectors to take part in the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023.

The cricket selectors selected the initial squad, of which both of these players were included, during a selection meeting held on September 5, 2023, at the SLC headquarters.

This was done despite the fact that both players were still recovering from injuries.

Following the selection meeting, on the same day, Sri Lanka Cricket sent the squad seeking approval of the National Sports Selection Committee, which comes under the Ministry of Sports and Youth Affairs.

In response, the Ministry of Sports and Youth Affairs sent a letter to Sri Lanka Cricket on September 26, 2023, seeking medical clearance to approve the inclusion of Wanindu Hasaranga, Dushmantha Chameera, and Dilshan Madushanka.

Finally, Sri Lanka Cricket, despite its intention to send Hasaranga and Chameera to the World Cup with the plan to play them at some point in the tournament after the duo recover from injuries, did not succeed, as the sports ministry did not approve the sending of the two players without medical clearance.
