T20 World Cup: Asitha Fernando replaces injured Binura Fernando in Sri Lanka’s squad | Cricket News


SYDNEY: Medium pacer Asitha Fernando was added to the Sri Lankan squad for the T20 World Cup as a substitute for the injured Binura Fernando.
Binura suffered a left hamstring injury during their seven-wicket loss to Australia in Perth on Tuesday.
The replacement was approved by the six-member event technical committee of the T20 World Cup, the ICC said in a statement.
“He will travel from Sri Lanka and join the rest of the team in Australia,” ICC said.
The 25-year-old Asitha played three T20Is and the last one against India during their triumphant Asia Cup campaign in the UAE.
Sri Lanka, who have two points from two matches, will face New Zealand here on Saturday.
