The Sri Lanka cricket team has suffered a major setback. Before the ODI series, news has come that two star players of the team have been out. Kusal Perera was already out due to injury, but now Binura Fernando’s number has also come, he has also been injured. Fans will no longer be able to see this left-arm fast bowler playing in the upcoming series. The Sri Lanka Cricket Board gave this information on Friday.
The Sri Lanka Cricket Board said Pereira suffered an injury to his right shoulder and that Fernando sprained his left ankle during training. 30-year-old Kusal Perera was a strong contender for team wicketkeeping after Niroshan Dickwella was suspended for breaking a left bubble in England. Kusal Perera was one of the experienced batsmen of Sri Lanka.
Although the team is weak, yet this player had the ability to play a big innings. Notably, Kusal Perera was also the captain of the Sri Lanka team in England, but after a dispute between the players and the cricket board over the central contract, Dashun Shanks was made the captain in his place. Let us tell you that the three-match ODI series between Sri Lanka and India is starting from July 18.
After this, a three-match T20 series will also be played between the two teams. These three T Twenty matches will be played on 25, 27 and 29 July while the ODIs will now be played on 18, 20 and 23 July. Although earlier India’s series with Sri Lanka was to start from July 13, but on returning from the tour of England, a case of corona came to light in the support staff of the Sri Lankan team. However, the reports of all the players came negative.
