Sri Lankan cricketers Wanindu Hasaranga and Dushmantha Chameera haven’t got a clearance yet from their board who are set to join Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the upcoming IPL.

Sri Lanka Cricket secretary Mohan de Silva, on Sunday told Cricbuzz, "I don't know, I have to check. We are under lockdown till the end of the month. He further said that the board will take a decision on the players only when the application for no-objection certificates is made before them.

He said the cricketers have neither applied for NOC’s from the board nor the board is aware of their signings.

"We have not taken any decision yet as they will have to apply for the NOCs. We are not aware of these players being selected, neither have they sought permission from us," he said.

All-rounder Hasaranga will replace Australia’s Adam Zampa, Chameera will play in place of Daniel Sams, Zampa’s fellow Aussies.

It is learnt that SLC wants its players fully fit for the Twenty20 World Cup, which is set to take place on October-November and before that they plan to leave for Oman, where they are planning to play a few games.

Sri Lanka will also host South Africa for three ODIs and three Twenty20 Internationals starting from September 2 to 14.
