Dushmantha Chameera

Sri Lanka have called fast bowler Dushmantha Chameera into their World Cup squad as replacement for the injured Dhammika Prasad, Cricinfo reported on Monday.

The 23-year-old Chameera has played in one limited-overs international, taking two wickets against New Zealand last month.

Sri Lanka, the 1996 world champions, face New Zealand in the World Cup’s opening match on Saturday in Christchurch.
