Vivo IPL 2021: Hasaranga and Chameera granted NOC to play the IPL 2021 phase 2 in UAE

Vivo IPL 2021: Sri Lanka’s two recent signings for the IPL, Wanindu Hasaranga and Dushmantha Chameera, have been given clearance by the Sri Lankan Cricket Board (SLC) to feature in the remainder of the IPL 2021. Hasaranga and Chameera granted NOC on Sunday and will soon travel to the UAE to participate in the glamorous Indian T20 league.

Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) signed the two cricketers after a couple of their overseas players pulled out citing personal reasons. Wanindu Hasaranga and Dushmantha Chameera will replace Adam Zampa and Daniel Sams in the squad for the remaining matches.

“The permission for the players was granted by the SLC in consultation with the Technical advisory committee,” said Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) in a statement.

“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),” it added.

Both the players will rejoin their national squad on October 10 to play two warm-up matches before featuring in the ICC T20 World Cup 2021 Qualifiers.

It is noteworthy that the RCB, on Sunday, landed in the UAE and will undergo a six days isolation prior to the beginning of the training for the Indian Premier League second half.

Virat Kohli led RCB will square off with Eoin Morgan led Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) to begin their IPL campaign in Abu Dhabi on 20th September.

As of now, RCB is placed third in the points table with five wins out of seven matches. The group in red and black performed well in the first half to strengthen their hopes for the maiden IPL title this season.
