Chaminda Bandara included in Sri Lankan squad for third Test

Uncapped seamer Chaminda Bandara has been called in as a replacement for the injured Dushmantha Chameera in Sri Lanka's squad for the Third Test against England at Lord's. 

The 29-year-old left-armer has been called in following Chameera's lower-back injury, which ruled him out for the rest of the England tour.

Bandara will leave for England with Kusal Perera, who replaced injured seamer Dhammika Prasad; both players will be available for selection for the Lord's Test, which starts from June 9.

Sri Lanka will also wait for the results of tests on Shaminda Eranga's bowling action, which will take place on June 6.

Eranga's action had been reported after the second Test, at Chester-Le-Street.

If the tests conclude that Eranga's action is illegal, he will barred from bowling in international cricket with immediate effect.

Bandara has played 51 first-class matches, taking 141 wickets at an average of 29.85.
