Sri Lanka’s key spin bowler Lasith Embuldeniya will be out of action for eight weeks, national team’s sources in Antigua revealed to Sunday Morning Sports yesterday (3).
Embuldeniya injured his left thigh while fielding on the 4th day of the 2nd cricket Test against West Indies in Antigua on Thursday (1) and had to be stretchered off the ground.
Desperately unlucky but this is the trend with SL cricket – key players keep getting injured or find ways to miss being on the park. Dimuth missed Eng tour, Anji missed the SA and WI, Chandi, KJP…the list goes on. This is without naming the fast bowlers who are constantly out with injury. Man management folks.
