SLC issues NOC to Hasaranga, Chameera for IPL 2021; duo to miss play-offs

The Sri Lankan duo were added to the RCB squad as replacements for Adam Zampa and Daniel Sams

Sri Lanka all-rounder Wanindu Hasaranga and fast bowler Dushmantha Chameera have been given permission to play in the second half of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021, starting following the completion of the series against South Africa. South Africa are scheduled to play three ODIs and as many T20Is, starting September 2 and the tour will end with the final T20I on September 14.

The UAE leg of the IPL is scheduled to begin from September 19, allowing enough time for the Sri Lankan players to make it to the UAE.  Recently, Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) had picked Hasaranga as a replacement for Australian Adam Zampa, while Chameera will replace Daniel Sams in the team. The Bangalore franshice also added Singapore batsman Tim David to the team as well.

"The permission for the players was granted by the SLC in consultation with the Technical Advisory Committee," the SLC media release said. 

"The ‘No Objection Certificate’ to the duo was issued for them to join the IPL teams starting from 15th September (following the completion of the South Africa Tour of Sri Lanka)."

"The two players will join the Sri Lanka squad on 10th October 2021 to play in the two warm-up games prior to the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup Qualifiers," the release further added.

While this is the first time Hasaranga will take part in the IPL, Chameera was part of the Rajasthan Royals (RR) squad in 2018 but did not play a single game.
