Sri Lanka Cricket Team Squad for ICC Cricket World Cup 2019
Sri Lanka Cricket Team Squad: With no big names in the squad, Sri Lanka is one of the weakest side’s in the 2019 World Cup. The Islanders enter the 12th edition of the prestigious tournament with no real expectations.
The team will be led by a new skipper in the form of Dimuth Karunaratne. The batting though hasn’t been their strongest point having players with the likes of Kusal Mendis, Kusal Perera, Lahiru Thirimanne and Avishka Fernando. They will be supported by experienced all-rounders like Angelo Mathews, Thisara Perera, Jeevan Mendis, and Isuru Udana.
Nuwan Pradeep, Suranga Lakmal, Isuru Udana along with Malinga will take care of new-ball duties while Sri Lanka is traveling to England with just one dedicated spinner in Jeffrey Vandersay.
