Chattogram challengers have roped Sri Lankan all-rounder Asela Gunaratne for the rest of the Bangabandhu BPL. The franchise authorities have confirmed this news.

Gunaratne is set to play for the first time in the BPL. However, he played for Mohammedan Sporting Club in Dhaka Premier Division Cricket league last season.

In addition to batting, his medium pace is very efficient. He has played 6 Tests, 31 ODIs and 12 Twenty20 matches for Sri Lanka national team.

Gunaratne made 225 runs with two half-centuries in T-20Is and took 5 wickets with the ball.

He has last played for the national team in January against New Zealand. Gunaratne has played the last Test and Twenty20 in 20 matches.
