Sri Lanka Cricket Faces World Cup Challenge as Key Spinner Wanindu Hasaranga Injured Again
Sri Lanka’s national cricket team faces a setback as key spinner Wanindu Hasaranga re-injured his leg during a training session. Having previously withdrawn from the Asia Cup due to a hamstring injury, Hasaranga is now in the rehabilitation unit, aiming for full recovery in time for the upcoming World Cup. The selection committee is considering his inclusion in the World Cup squad but awaits the results of an MRI scan.
Meanwhile, Dasun Shanaka is expected to lead the team in the tournament. There were rumors about his captaincy following a poor performance, but the selection committee decided to retain him as captain to maintain stability and boost his confidence.
Dasun Shanaka will continue as captain despite recent performance concerns, with the team preparing for the World Cup.
The cut-off date for finalizing the World Cup squad is September 28, 2023. The selection committee is in discussions to make the final selections, with a focus on ensuring a competitive and balanced team.
