T20 World Cup 2022 – Namibia vs SL

Dilshan Madushankathe left-arm seamer, has been ruled out of the T20 World Cup after suffering a quadriceps tear on the eve of Sri Lanka’s first match of the tournament. The ICC’s Event Technical Committee has approved Binura Fernando as Madushanka’s replacement in the squad for the rest of the tournament.

Madushanka was seen limping away from training on Saturday and was quickly sent for an MRI which confirmed the injury.

After making his international debut in the recent Asia Cup, Madushanka had impressed during the tournament, taking six wickets and maintaining an economy rate of 7.75 over six matches.

Bringing lively pace and swing to the powerplay overs, as well as variety at the death, he might have become Sri Lanka’s second choice quickly, behind Dushmantha Chameera. He is likely to be in the XI for Sunday’s first round match against Namibia.

Binura has played nine T20Is and four ODIs for Sri Lanka, taking 10 and two wickets respectively in the formats. He made his international debut for Sri Lanka in 2015, in the first T20I against Pakistan in Colombo. His last T20I was third match against India in Dharamsala in February 2022.

The other seamers in the Sri Lanka squad are Lahiru Kumara and Pramod Madushan.

Despite their recent Asia Cup victory, Sri Lanka will have to play the first round of the World Cup, where they will play the UAE and the Netherlands in addition to Namibia, to qualify for the main draw.
