BREAKING- Chameera, Kumara begin bowling practice

Dhanushka Aravinda reports from Colombo: Fast bowlers Dushmantha Chameera and Lahiru Kumara have commenced bowling practices ahead of the T20 World Cup in Australia next month.

Chameera and Lahiru Kumar missed the Asia Cup due to injuries but were included in the 15-man squad for the World Cup subject to the duo getting full fitness.

 Sri Lanka Cricket last week announced its squad for the tournament where Sri Lanka is expected to compete in the group stage to earn one of the four spots at the 12-team tournament.

Their return to the side will be a huge boost to the Sri Lankan side given fast and bouncing tracks in Australia.

The team will travel on October 2 to Melbourne to get acclimatized to the conditions.
