Sri Lanka-born sports physio in self isolation in Australia

Sri Lanka-born sports physio Dulan Kodikara is in self-quarantine in Australia. The 37-year-old  Kodikara had migrated to Australia in 2011 and is now working with the Cricket Australia (CA).

Speaking exclusively over telephone from Australia on Monday morning, he said, “I went to my native place Negombo (Sri Lanka) with my family (wife and a 14-month old baby) earlier this month and just returned last week. I am in self quarantine for 14 days with my family as per Australian government directives.”

Kodikara is a sports physio and current PhD scholar researching on head, neck and facial injuries in Australian community cricket. Last year he was even invited to attend the Cricket Science and Medicine conference held in Loughborough.

“I was supposed to be on tour with Australian indigenous U-19 team to New Zealand from March 21-28. The tour, however, got cancelled as a result of COVID-19,” he added further.
