“Sri Lankan cricket is in a healthy state with this bunch of young players”: Arthur

Wanindu Hasaranga’s excellent run in the World Cup has cemented him as the world’s top ranked T20 bowler and coach Mickey Arthur enthuses that he couldn’t be happier with where the “genuine world superstar” is at the moment.

The 24-year-old leg-spinner is the tournament’s leading wicket-taker with 14 wickets in seven games, including three-wicket hauls against the Netherlands, South Africa and England. He is also the world’s leading wicket-taker this year with 34 wickets, propelling him to 50 career international wickets in the format.
