As per Cricbuzz, Sri Lanka’s veteran pacer Dushmantha Chameera will miss the rest of the T20 World Cup. The 30-year-old, who has earlier missed the Asia Cup, injured his calf during Sri Lanka’s 79-run win over the UAE as well, which forced him to be out and also not to complete his spell after his spell of 3.5-0-15-3.

However, according to a report filed by Cricbuzz, Dushmantha Chameera has been ruled out of the rest of the ongoing T20 World Cup because of another calf injury. He earlier missed the entire Asia Cup campaign because of injuring his calf as well, and he is now out for the same reason. Notably, Chameera played a key role in Sri Lanka’s thumping 79-run win against the UAE, taking three for 15 off 3,5 overs. He could not complete his spell following the injury and came out off the field.
