IND vs SL: Wanindu Hasaranga to miss T20I series after testing positive for COVID-19

IND vs SL: Sri Lanka all-rounder Wanindu Hasaranga will miss the upcoming T20I series against India after testing positive for COVID-19.

“Wanindu Hasaranga, who was in isolation after contracting COVID-19, has once again, returned a positive result when a Rapid Antigen Test (RAT) conducted on the player yesterday (February 22). A PCR test too confirmed the result,” SLC said in an official statement.

“He was first found to be positive during a Rapid Antigen Test (RAT) conducted on February 15, 2022. The player transferred to Melbourne from Canberra. And will remain in isolation until he returns a negative PCR Test Report,” it added.

Hasaranga had previously tested positive for COVID-19 in the middle of the Australia series. Therefore, that forced him to miss the final few T20Is.

Sri Lanka defeated 1-4 by Australia, as the side often let down by their batting. Dasun Shanaka, the captain, is hoping that the batting side gets its act together. And can put up a fight against Team India.

Sri Lanka squad: Dasun Shanaka (c), Pathum Nissanka, Kusal Mendis, Charith Asalanka, Dinesh Chandimal, Danushka Gunathilaka, Kamil Mishara, Janith Liyanage, Dushmantha Chameera, Lahiru Kumara, Binura Fernando, Shiran Fernando, Maheesh Theekshana, Jeffrey Vandersay, Praveen Jayawickrama, Ashian Daniel (subject to ministerial approval)
