Fast bowler Dushmantha Chameera will not be available for the second Test against West Indies beginning in Galle on Monday, as Sri Lanka released five players from the 22-member squad. 

The 29-year-old right arm fast bowler, along with the four other players from the 22-member squad, left the team bio-bubble for Colombo on Saturday morning. 

"Chameera, who was also part of the recent T-20 World Cup sought permission to be with his seven-month old child. Few of these five, who left for Colombo, are part of the Lanka Premier League (LPL) (beginning in the first week of December) and they are allowed to spend sometime with the family before the LPL,” a Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) source said. 

The other four players, who were not part of the team in the first Test match, are Ashita Fernando,  Roshen Silva, Kamil Mishara and Suminda Lakshan. 

Vishwa Fernando will likely be considered as a replacement for Chameera for the second Test.
