Rajapaksa to skip Afghan tour; citing T10 League


Top-order batter Bhanuka Rajapaksa will not play in the three-match ODI series against Afghanistan after he asked to be excused from the tour in order to play in the Abu Dhabi T10 League, Timesonline learns authoritatively.

Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) has consented to release him on his request. The left-hander had already travelled to Kandy ahead of Friday’s opener against Afghanistan.

The Board confirmed to having excused him from the squad but said it will not issue a ‘No Objection Certificate’ (NOC) for him to play in the Abu Dhabi League.

“This is the kind of commitment these cricketers have for the country,” an SLC official said. Nuwanindu Fernando will replace him in the side.
