Lahiru Kumara to miss further part in Pallekele first Test

Lahiru Kumara took the wicket of only the Bangladesh top-scorer Najmul Hossain Shanto (163) for 88 runs in his 28 overs in the ongoing first Test

Sri Lanka’s fast bowler in the ongoing first Test against Bangladesh now on in Pallekele, Lahiru Kumara, is likely not to play further part in the match due to a hamstring strain.

Kumara is also likely to miss the second Test too that starts on 29 May at the same venue.

Bangladesh were strongly placed at 515/6 in their first innings in the morning session of play on Friday (23), the third day of the first Test.
