After Binura Fernando, a seamer, was forced to withdraw due to a hamstring injury, bowler Asitha Fernando will join Sri Lanka’s Twenty20 World Cup team.
For Sri Lanka, Asitha Fernando has participated in three T20 international matches and has claimed two wickets in the shortest format. Dilshan Madushanka, a left-arm fast bowler, had been injured earlier in the month, therefore Binura Fernando was added to the team as a replacement.
In the Super 12 stage, Sri Lanka, which is currently in second place in Group 1, will next face New Zealand on Saturday. “(Asitha) will travel out from Sri Lanka and join the rest of the squad in Australia,” In a statement released on Thursday, the event’s technical committee noted.
