Sri Lanka endured a twofold blow as Kusal Mendis and Shehan Jayasuriya are questionable to play in the third T20I as both endured leg wounds. Kusal Mendis and Jayasuriya supported damage while handling in the last T20I game against New Zealand.
“Kusal Mendis and Jayasuriya’s investment in the third game is far-fetched inferable from wounds, which happened following an impact between the two players while handling,” Team Manager Asantha De Mel said in an announcement.
Kusal Mendis has endured damage on his knee on the correct leg, while Jayasuriya has continued damage; over the knee on his correct leg. Mendis has experienced a MRI examine on Wednesday and the report is expected later in the day,” the announcement said.
“No substitutions will be made to the squad for the harmed players,” the announcement included.
New Zealand drives the three-coordinate T20I arrangement by 2-0 and will confront Sri Lanka in the last T20I at Pallekele International Cricket Stadium on September 6.
