Hasaranga unavailable for first T20 against India
CRICDOT DESK : India and Sri Lanka will meet in the first T20 match at midnight. The islanders will play a three-match T20 series and two Tests against India during the tour. A day before the match, Hasaranga was knocked out in the Lankan camp. He is still not playing in the T20 series as he has not fully recovered from Corona.
Two days ago, Sri Lanka announced a T20 squad with strong spinners against India. Hasaranga, the world’s number three T20 bowler, was the captain of the spin division in the 16-member team. Also in the squad are Mahesh Thikshana and Jeffrey Vanderse. Off-spinner Asean Daniel is in the team. But his game depends on the approval of the ministry.
Before coming to India, Sri Lanka visited Australia. In addition to Kusal Mendis and Binura Fernando, Hasaranga was attacked by Corona. Sri Lanka lost the five-match T20 series against Ajit 4-1. Hasaranga took five wickets in Australia. Hasaranga will play for Royal Challengers Bangalore in the IPL this year. The one who got the price in the auction is Rs 10.75 crore. He is the most expensive cricketer in the history of IPL.
