Sri Lanka’s Hasaranga ‘unlikely’ for World Cup with hamstring injury

According to media sources quoting a team doctor, all-rounder Wanindu Hasaranga is “highly unlikely” to participate in the 50-over World Cup in India despite Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) making every attempt to aid in his recovery from a hamstring injury.

The all-round spin bowler was hurt during the Lanka Premier League last month and could not compete in the Asia Cup, where Sri Lanka came second to India.

According to Arjuna de Silva, the head of the SLC medical panel, “We are consulting foreign doctors to see whether he needs surgery or not.”

“He will serve at least three months in jail if he does.

The situation is not good right now, and it is quite improbable that he can play in the World Cup.

Given that the 26-year-old was the leading wicket-taker in the last two T20 World Cups, Hasaranga’s absence would be a significant setback for the 1996 champions.

The 15-member Sri Lankan World Cup roster must be revealed by September 28 for the tournament to start on October 5.

De Silva claimed that the SLC made every effort to ensure Hasaranga could participate in several World Cup games.

We are exploring various options to see how we can best secure his services, at the very least for crucial games, because he is a fundamental component of our offensive strategy.

“Everything depends on the consultant’s viewpoints, to whom we are attempting to present his reports.

Due to a pectoral muscle injury, fast bowler Dushmantha Chameera also runs the possibility of missing the World Cup.

According to de Silva, Chameera is currently bowling, although she continues to express pain.

“To determine the best course of treatment for him, we spoke with a physician in the United Kingdom.”
