Sri Lanka all-rounder Chamika Karunaratne, unfortunately, lost his four teeth while taking a catch in the Lanka Premier League 2022. The incident occurred during Match 4 of LPL 2022 between Galle Gladiators and Jaffna Kings at Hambantota.

Karunaratne, while fielding at covers for the Kings got hold of Nuwanidu Fernando’s catch off Carlos Brathwaite’s ball in the fourth over of the Gladiators’ innings.

However, he sustained a nasty blow to his face during a catching attempt. As a result, he bled and lost four teeth, as reported by Sri Lanka's national daily Daily Mirror.  

Karunaratne took to Instagram to confirm the development, wherein he is seen posing for a photo with clear bruises on his lips. He captained the story, “Lost 4 teeth, got them back, got 30 stitches and I can still smile a little. I will be back stronger than ever with a smile in Pallekele! See you soon!”

After receiving a blow, the 26-year-old went to the hospital for immediate surgery. Hence, Chamika didn’t come onto the field to take a further part in the game. Brathwaite took four wickets to restrict Gladiators to 121.

Afterwards, Sadeera Samarawickrama (62*) and Avishka Fernando (51) helped the Kings to seal the game easily. According to Karunaratne’s story, he is likely to return to action on Saturday (December 10) for the Kings against Kandy Falcons.

Last month, Karunratne was handed a one-year ban from international cricket by Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC), after he was found to breach several clauses of the Players’ agreement at the Twenty20 World Cup in Australia. As a result, he recently featured in the Abu Dhabi T10 League as well.
