Mahela Jayawardene to join squad in Bangladesh

With injuries to Tillakaratne Dilshan, Chamara Silva and Muthumudalige Pushpakumara weakening the Sri Lankan batting, there is some talk of Mahela Jayawardene being sent to Bangladesh to join the squad.

Silva has fractured his finger whilst Pushpakumara has injured his shoulder.

Both may not play any further part in this tournament.

Mahela, we were told, had suffered a groin strain and was not picked for this tour.

But his form and mediocre performances in ODIs were also in question, and he drew criticism in the media after the India series.

It appears he has made a speedy recovery and sources close to the Sri Lankan camp in Bangladesh inform me that Mahela may be flown to Bangladesh to make an appearance in the ongoing Tri-Nation tournament.
