Sri Lanka Hoping for Wanindu Hasaranga to be Fit for Third ODI vs Australia

Sri Lanka are hoping their charismatic spinner Venando Hasaranga will be fit to lead them in the third one-day international when the 24-year-old was knocked out of the home team’s 26-run defeat against Australia in the second match.

The five-match series against the Aaron Finch-led team is tied at 1-1. While tourists are worried about a number of injuries ahead of the game, Sri Lanka also suffered an injury to their star twicker Hasaranga before the second ODI on June 16, although they stayed with the team in an attempt to play later in the series. Are .

Sri Lanka know how important Hasranga is to their team structure and the medical staff is doing everything possible to ensure that they take to the field at the R. Primadasa Stadium on Sunday.

Sri Lanka Cricket tweeted, “Vanandu Hasaranga, who suffered from back muscle strain while fielding during the first ODI, is currently under the care of the team’s medical team,”.

“The medical team is reviewing his condition and the team will update the management on a daily basis about the condition of the player. Therefore, Hasranga will remain with the squad throughout the ODI series. “

Hasranga made a quick 37 off the bat and took four important wickets while bowling with his groove in the opening match of the series last week and was also Sri Lanka’s highest wicket-taker during the recent T20I series against Australia. The Tourists won 2-1.

Sri Lankan all-rounder Chamika Krunartne knows how important Hasranga is to him and believes the 24-year-old could make a difference if he manages to make a comeback later in the series.

“He’s one of the best all-rounders in the world,” Kronartney said of Hasranga. If they join the team we will be stronger and we will have a good chance to win the series against Australia.

“We have a good batting line-up and it is going very well. As a player, we are pushing to improve our level individually and with each game for the team.

“We can make small mistakes but we have to correct them. We are pushing ourselves more than 100 percent to win the series.”

Australia are worried about their injury in the third match of the series. Smith damaged his quad while batting in the second match of the series and it looks as if he is unlikely to be in danger for Sunday’s Colombo clash.

That could pave the way for all-rounder Mitch Marsh’s return from injury, while Cameron Green and Josh England are other options for a strong Australian team. Australia have already injured Ashton Eger, Marcus Stevens and Ken Richardson in the tour, while left-arm pacer Mitchell Starc is expected to return for Sunday’s match.
