Kusal Perera could miss T20 World Cup with hamstring injury


Meanwhile, allrounder Lahiru Madushanka has definitely been ruled out with a fractured collarbone

Kusal Perera may miss the T20 World Cup after sustaining a hamstring injury during Sri Lanka’s third T20 International against South Africa. Allrounder Lahiru Madushanka, meanwhile, is definitely out of the World Cup, having fractured his collarbone while fielding in the same match.

Perera was clearly struggling with his hamstring while running between the wickets during his innings, in which he top-scored for Sri Lanka with 39. Dr. Daminda Attanayake, a team physician, told ESPNcricinfo that Perera’s availability for the World Cup was “on the fence”, and that the medical team might have a clearer idea of his prognosis after further observation and testing, which should occur by September 23.

“The inury is a sprinter’s injury, which can be picked up while running between the wickets,” Attanayake said. “Because of the nature of the injury we can’t do a fast rehabilitation.”
