Hasaranga, Chameera yet to get clearance from SLC for IPL

The two Sri Lankan cricketers are set to feature for RCB in the second half of the tournament

Royal Challengers Bangalore have acquired the services of Wanindu Hasaranga and Dushmantha Chameera for the remainder of the Indian Premier League 2021 season but Sri Lanka Cricket secretary Mohan de Silva said the two haven’t got a clearance yet from their board.

"I don't know, I have to check. We are under lockdown till the end of the month. We have not taken any decision yet as they will have to apply for the NOCs. We are not aware of these players being selected, neither have they sought permission from us," de Silva told Cricbuzz.

The board wants its players to be fit and ready for the upcoming Twenty20 World Cup, which will be played in the UAE and Oman after the end of IPL 2021. The second half of the IPL will commence from September 19 in the UAE. Sri Lanka are also scheduled to play three ODIs and as many T20I against South Africa in the first half of September. 

The two went unsold in the IPL auction but have now been added as replacements for Australia's Adam Zampa and Daniel Sams. Hasaranga and Chameera have been acquired for their base price of Rs 50 lakh.

Hasaranga is one of the impressive young spinners in the world at the moment and in the recently-concluded India series, the leggie picked up 10 wickets from five games and played a huge role in Sri Lanka securing a series win.

Meanwhile, Chameera picked up four wickets in the T20I series against India but never conceded more than 6 runs an over in any of the games.
