Sri Lanka have called up uncapped left-arm seamer Chaminda Bandara, 29, for the third Test with England, to replace the injured Dushmantha Chameera.

The tourists have already replaced injured paceman Dhammika Prasad with Kusal Perera, while Shaminda Eranga’s bowling action is being investigated.

England have already clinched a series victory over Sri Lanka by winning the first two of the three-Test series.

The third and final match starts at Lord’s on Thursday 9 June.

Chameera has a stress fracture of the back, while Prasad has been ruled out with a shoulder problem.
