Tomorrow cricket match prediction: Sri Lanka withdraw injured Hasini Perera from T20 World Cup

Sri Lanka have ruled out veteran campaigner Hasini Perera from their 15-man squad for the upcoming T20 World Cup after suffering an injury. Perera, a former team nominee, was kicked out after injuring his finger during his session in training.

The experienced Ama his Kanchana debuted in his T20I almost a decade before him and was recalled for the first time since his Commonwealth Games.

Chamari Athapaththu will once again lead his 15-man team. Sri Lanka is in Group A, alongside New Zealand, Bangladesh, hosts South Africa and holders Australia. They will begin their campaign on opening night (10th February) against South Africa at Newlands.
