Danushka Gunatilleke, who was demoted to the D2 category with only a $30,000 per annum contract, has been Sri Lanka’s prolific run-scorer in recent times. However, his fitness has come into question regularly.Dhananjaya de Silva, who earned the highest category (A1) contract worth $100,000 from the SLC, also failed the 2-km fitness test. The all-rounder has been in fine form, scoring 166 against Bangladesh in the 1st Test. Now, he will again need to retake the test for the England series and failing that would rule him out of it.Also Read: BAN vs SL: Bangladesh skipper Tamim Iqbal concerned with weak fielding, says “it cost us matches”The 2-km fitness run is done every 40 days with the players needing to complete the distance within 8 minutes and 35 seconds. Every player gets a second chance to clear the test within the next 40 days and failing it twice in a row gets a cricketer the boot.However, another opening batsman, Avishka Fernando, who could not find a place in the Bangladesh series after failing his fitness test, has now cleared it in second attempt in Colombo. He will be eligible for selection for the England series.Bangladesh vs Sri Lanka Series SquadsSri Lanka squad: Kusal Perera (C), Kusal Mendis (VC), Danushka Gunathilaka, Dhananjaya De Silva, Pathum Nissanka, Dasun Shanaka, Ashen Bandara, Wanindu Hasaranga, Isuru Udana, Akila Dananjaya, Niroshan Dickwella, Dushmantha Chameera, Ramesh Mendis, Asitha Fernando, Lakshan Sandakan, Chamika Karunaratne, Binura Fernando, Shiran FernandoBangladesh squad: Tamim Iqbal (capt), Liton Das, Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim, Mohammad Mithun, Mahmudullah, Afif Hossain, Mehidy Hasan Miraz, Mohammad Saifuddin, Taskin Ahmed, Mustafizur Rahman, Soumya Sarkar, Mosaddek Hossain, Mahedi Hasan, Shoriful IslamFor more sports updates, follow us at and Moneyball for IPL players’ salaries.
