Dilshan Madushanaka likely out of tournament with quadricep injury

The left-arm seamer was one of the key members of Sri Lanka’s Asia Cup-winning squad

The 22-year-old left-arm pacer Dilshan Madushanaka was an automatic pick in Sri Lanka’s playing XI for the T20 World Cup Down Under. However, hours before Sri Lanka’s opener against Namibia, the left-arm pacer has been ruled out of the fixture with a quadricep injury. 

Reports have suggested that Madushanka will be ruled out of the entire competition, with his injury needing at least four weeks to completely heal. According to The Sunday Times, the pacer left the training session just four balls into his second over, nursing his hips. 

Since making his debut for the national team, the left-armer has played six T20Is, picking up as many wickets, with best figures of 3/24. The reports further added that the management are pondering to bring in either of Kasun Rajitha or Binura Fernando into the mix following the injury. Both of them missed the Asia Cup with injuries but have returned since then. 

It would be interesting to see who shares the new ball with the returning Dushmantha Chameera in the Islander’s opener against Namibia at the Geelong. Reports have pointed at Pramod Madushan, the right-arm seamer who was also impressive in the Asia Cup win to share the new ball with Chameera.
