In a major setback, Sri Lanka were on Tuesday forced to leave out star spinner Wanindu Hasaranga from their 15-member squad for the upcoming ODI World Cup in India due to a hamstring injury.


The leg-spinner will miss the entire tournament after sustaining a thigh strain during last month’s play-offs of the Lankan Premier League, where he finished as the top run-scorer with 279 runs and the leading wicket-taker with 19 scalps.

The injury subsequently ruled Hasaranga out of the Asia Cup. Sri Lanka announced their World Cup squad just two days prior the ICC cut off date, all-rounder Dasun Shanaka will lead the team. Kusal Mendis has been named as Shanaka’s deputy.

In case, Hasaranga had to undergo a surgery, he will be out of action for at least three months.
