Sri Lanka’s stand-in ODI skipper Lahiru Thirimanne has suffered an injury scare ahead of the tour to Pakistan after he complained of a pain in his back while training. His condition is now being monitored by the physio.
“There was a slight concern about Thirimanne, he had some pain on one of his discs, that’s what the physio said. But so far they have said that it is nothing serious and hopefully he will be alright,” said team manager Ashantha de Mel.
“At the moment he is not under any pain or anything but by Friday we will know exactly his situation. More or less I think he should be okay,” he further elaborated.
The rest of the ODI and T20I squad is engaging in practice sessions at the R Premadasa Stadium. Sri Lanka’s tour to Pakistan, due to commence on September 27, consists of three ODIs and three T20Is.
