Hasaranga and Chameera were roped in as replacement players ahead of the second half of IPL 2021 in place of Australian duo Adam Zampa and Daniel Sams. Hasaranga ended up with no wickets against his name in two matches in the UAE and made only one run with the bat. Chameera, on the other hand, didn't feature in any of Bangalore's matches in the league stage.

On Sunday, Hasaranga had thanked the franchise for the experience of the IPL. "Here's saying a heartfelt thank you and wishing my family/team mates at @royalchallengersbangalore all the best for the playoffs. This is probably the year we win it all. This experience has been amazing, from team to management to everything. There is a strong bond of brotherhood and friendship we share here. I'm truly grateful for the opportunity. Go well RCB," wrote Hasaranga on his Instagram account.

Hasaranga's teammate in Bangalore, leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal commented on the post, saying 'Good luck brotherman.'

Sri Lanka, the 2014 men's T20 World Cup champions, are part of Group A alongside Namibia, the Netherlands and Ireland in Round 1. They will begin their campaign against Namibia on 18 October in Abu Dhabi.
