If losing the first Test against the Windies wasn’t a blow enough, the Sri Lanka cricket team will be on the losing end of two of perhaps their most important players. Angelo Mathews and Lahiru Gamage will be taking an early flight back home to Sri Lanka following the Test deafeat against Jason Holder’s men at Port of Spain in Trinada.
While Mathews will be returning for personal reasons, Gamage sustained a fracture on his finger while batting. Both players made very little contribution to the side following the loss with Mathews scorign just the 11 and 31 in each innings. Gamage on the other hand went wicketless right through the Test match.
They will be replaced by Danushkha Gunathilaka and Dasun Shanaka respectively for the remainder of the series.
