Praveen Jayavikrama ruled out of second Test with Australia due to Kovid

Sri Lankan left arm spinner Praveen Jayavikrama He has been ruled out of the second Test against Australia, starting in Galle on Friday, after testing positive for Covid-19.

An SLC media release said the 23-year-old complained of feeling “unwell”, prompting the test. “Jayavikrama was immediately isolated from the rest of the team and will now remain in room isolation for 5 days,” the release said.

Following Jayavikrama’s positive test, the rest of Sri Lanka’s players and support staff were subjected to a rapid antigen test, with the SLC confirming that they all had negative results.

The news comes as a blow to Sri Lanka, who would have been relying on Jayawickrama to level the series. Sri Lanka suffered a massive 10-wicket defeat on the spin-heavy Galle surface last week. However, one of the most important aspects was that the visiting spinners had to get much more assistance from the surface than the home side. One of those left arm spinners Lasith Embuldenia Struggled most, without taking a wicket and bowled only 15 overs.

Jayavikrama was slated to come into the side, in place of out-of-form Embuldeniya. His unavailability leaves Embuldeniya as the only left-arm spinner in the team, although the 19-year-old uncapped spin-bowling all-rounder Dunith Velalez, who impressed in the ODI series against Australia, ended it as the leading wicket-taker. Yes, it’s on the list. of standby players.

Jayavikrama is the second player to have contracted Kovid on the tour, with Angelo Mathews being dropped midway through the first Test. Mathews is currently recovering from the disease, although the SLC is hopeful that he will be fit for the second Test.
