The Dambulla Viiking team have added Ramith Rambukwella in the squad replacing Aftab Alam who left the Lanka Premier League (LPL) this week. 

The 29-year-old batsman, Rambukwella, can also bowl off-breaks,

Afghanistan's pace bowler Alam left the Lanka Premier League (LPL) because of his own illness. 

"We have one known off-spinner in the squad, Rambukwella's addition will strengthen our bowling attack," a sources said. 

Rambukwella has played 2 T20Is for Sri Lanka. 

Meanwhile, Dale Steyn who arrived in Sri Lanka a week ago has completed his mandatory seven-day quarantine, and is available for selection in the Kandy Tuskers’ next match, which is against the Jaffna Stallions in Hambantota on December 9.

All LPL players, including those who have left early, have been paid 60% of the match fees. 

What payment arrangements will be worked out for the players leaving early is not known.
