Dushmantha Chameera

Depressed, distressed, and disheartened, a large number of Sri Lanka national and first-class cricketers are planning to migrate to USA for professional cricket, sending shockwaves to country’s cricket future, The Morning learnt.

“A lot of players will soon go to America. It will happen in two categories, as emerging and national. National player Shehan Jayasuriya has already gone. Around 15 more to follow him by March,” one inside source said on Monday (15).

The players who are to retire and migrate to play for USA soon include allegedly leading players such as Upul Tharanga, Dushmantha Chameera, Amila Aponso, Malinda Pushpakumara, Dilshan Munaweera, Lahiru Madushanka, Manoj Sarathchandra and Nishan Peiris.

  1. I genuinely wish **Upul Tharanga** can immigrate to the USA and have a tranquil life. Sorry, he was born in the poorest part of the world, suffered RACISM from his own Sinhalese people. he was abandoned numerous times, he could have undoubtedly scored over 10’000 runs. ****just consider **Lasith Malinga** Sri Lanka’s living God’ of cricket, he was dropped for more than one and half years for nothing, due to racism and cast concerns in Sri Lanka. Let them leave the most unfortunate part of the world and be happy.
