Chamara Kapugedera may join Chennai Super Kings

Though there is no official confirmation, rumours have started that Chamara Kapugedera, the talented opening batsman from Sri Lanka may join Chennai Super Kings. Swarnavahini, a leading news and entertainment channel in Sri Lanka reported this news. 

About Chamara Kapugedera

Chamara Kapugedera, a naturally aggressive right-hander, got his first taste of international cricket when he made his One Day International debut against Australia in Perth in 2006, A stylish and classical player, he is also known for his big hits. Though Chamara Kapugedera may not find a place in the playing eleven, it will be a great experience and a good income for the young batsman.


Bringing him into the squad is a good thing since it makes the current four to justify their presence ahead of him. A good move especially if the future is taken into account. Hope they follow this by bringing in the talented Ajantha Mendis also into the squad.

hey that is excellent news. also i think it is time to give some of our yongsters a game - maybe one of srikanth anirudh or napoleon einstein or abhinav mukund. makes sense to bring them in now than at the end if it becomes a do or die situation.

@ Gaurav,
Yeah it is good news.. since it will push top four(especially Fleming) to perform since now the team management won't think twice about replacing them in the case of a poor form..
