September 27, 2023

In a spirited departure, the Sri Lanka Cricket team embarked on their journey to India, where they will compete in the prestigious ICC Men's Cricket World Cup 2023. This exciting development follows the official announcement of the 15-member squad for the tournament, with an additional travelling reserve player ready to join the ranks.

The squad's composition was unveiled yesterday, and while the team is eager to showcase their cricketing prowess on the global stage, they faced a minor setback due to an injury. Wanidu Hasaranga, a key player in Sri Lanka's lineup, sustained an injury, prompting a swift decision to replace him with the talented Dushan Hemantha.

Chamika Karunarathne will join the squad as the travelling reserve player, providing valuable backup and flexibility to the team throughout the tournament. With a blend of experienced players and emerging talents, Sri Lanka is determined to make its mark in this year's World Cup and compete fiercely against the world's best cricketing nations.
