Dammika Prasad included in the 15-man Sri Lanka squad

Sri Lankan cricket team has announced their squad for the next month’s ICC Champions Trophy in South Africa. In this 15-man squad, Sri Lankan pace bowler Dammika Prasad has been included. The 26-year-old Prasad has been selected in the place of regular strike bowler Dilhara Fernando and left-arm seamer Isuru Udana. These are two reserve players. The most exciting change in Sri Lanka squad is that Tillakaratne Dilshan has been included.

Sri Lanka is one of the strongest teams in this elite nation tournament. They are now in the second position of the recently announced ICC Test rankings. No doubt, they will get much focus on this up coming tournament. Dammika Prasad is a very good bowler. His good performance against New Zealand helped him getting a place in this squad. It is time to see how he can perform in this tournament.
