Two of Sri Lanka’s key players, Danushka Gunathilaka and Dhananjaya de Silva, will undergo a 2 kilometre run fitness test on Friday, it is learnt.

This will be their second fitness test in the last 15 days.

They both failed the run tests which were conducted recently during the Bangladesh tour.

The 29-year-old all rounder de Silva and the 30-year-old left-hand opening batsman Gunathilaka are believed to be part of the squad for the forthcoming England tour.

The venue for the 2km test is yet to be finalised and will be notified to both players soon. Both are in the hotel bio-bubble with other members of the touring squad.

Few more players are to be part of the England tour, including all-rounder Ishan Jayaratne, who is also likely to be invited for the fitness tests.

The tests will be supervised by Grant Luden.

In the meantime, the results of the first PCR tests of the players and the support staff members, who returned from Bangladesh on Sunday are encouraging. All were found to be negative. Sri Lanka is scheduled to play three ODIS and three T20IS in England.
