Sri Lanka’s Upul Tharanga to replace Kumar Sangakkara in third TestJune 30, 2015
Sri Lanka batsman Upul Tharanga has been chosen to replace Kumar Sangakkara for the third and final Test against Pakistan in Pallekele. Sangakkara said he won’t be there for his country due to English County commitments with Surrey, but a bigger reason is the announcement of his Test retirement. The new man Tharanga hasn’t played a Test since last year in Colombo; that was also against Pakistan. The 3-match series, currently at 1-1, ends with the Pallekele Test starting Friday.
