Chandimal hospitalized

Captain of Sri Lanka’s test team Dinesh Chandimal has been hospitalized at a private hospital due to a viral fever.

It is reported that as a result he might miss the first test against India. Due to his illness, Chandimal did not participate in the media briefing held yesterday (20) and instead Twenty20 Captain Upul Tharanga participated.

However, in the event Chandimal is unable to participate in the first test, the selectors expect to appoint either Upul Tharanga or former Captain Rangana Herath to head the test side.
