The head of the medical team for Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC), Arjuna de Silva, gave an update on Wanindu Hasaranga’s injuries. The great spinner is presently recovering from a hamstring injury he suffered in August during the Lankan Premier League (LPL 2023) playoffs. This injury prevented him from participating in Sri Lanka’s recent Asia Cup campaign, during which they placed second.
The upcoming Cricket World Cup in India, which runs from October 5 to November 19, is unlikely to feature the cricketer. Arjuna claims that the management of the organisation is now consulting with foreign physicians to assess whether the player needs surgery or not.
