Bandula Warnupura hospitalized, critically ill


Sri Lanka’s first Test Captain, Bandula Warnapura, has been admitted to a private hospital in Colombo, and is critically ill.

The legendary Cricketer was taken to the hospital to treat a sudden injury three days ago. A spike in his diabetes level made his condition critical and the doctors were forced to amputate his left leg.

The 68-year-old gentleman played 4 Tests and 12 ODIs for Sri Lanka from 1975 to 1982. He was later charged with a lifetime ban for leading a Sri Lankan team on a rebel tour to South Africa. At present, Warnapura is the President of the Bloomfield Cricket & Athletic Club.
