For the third time, the Sri Lanka Cricket Board has changed the team for the T20 World Cup. At last, the Sri Lanka Cricket Board had selected the team for the mega event and a few days ago the board had made some changes and now before the deadline of the International Cricket Council ie ICC, the Sri Lanka Cricket Board has finalized its team, in which 4 changes were made. Huh.
Spinner Akila Dhananjaya, batsman Pathum Nisanka, fast bowler Lahiru Kumara and Binura Fernando have been included in the 15-member squad by the Sri Lanka Cricket Board (SLC) for the T20 World Cup.
