Speaking in the pre-match presser, skipper Dasun Shanaka was asked an update on Maheesh Theekshana’s fitness. Maheesh was injured in the game against Netherlands with a side strain and didn’t complete his overs.
“I don’t think this injury [Side Strain] will last for too long. But, he is most likely to be rested for this game. However, we’re trying our best to get him back to full fitness. “ Shanaka said.
Sri Lanka will compete in Group 1 with Bangladesh, Australia, South Africa, England and West Indies.
Maheesh’s injury concern was also discussed in the The Daraz World Cup Payback Series which streamed LIVE on PodHUB earlier today.
