Sri Lanka Squad, Schedule, and Probable Playing XI for ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023

Sri Lanka Cricket has announced the 15-member squad for the upcoming ICC Men’s ODI World Cup 2023. The announcement comes with excitement and disappointment, as one of Sri Lanka’s star players, Wanindu Hasaranga, will miss the event due to a hamstring injury.

The 26-year-old bowling all-rounder Wanindu Hasaranga has recently been an outstanding performer for Sri Lanka. His absence from the World Cup significantly blows the team’s prospects. The all-rounder Dasun Shanaka will lead Sri Lanka in the World Cup.

Unlike some cricketing nations, Sri Lanka did not receive a direct entry into the ICC World Cup 2023. They had to battle through the qualifier round to secure their spot. They won the final match and remained unbeaten throughout the qualifying tournament.

Sri Lanka’s journey in the ICC Men’s ODI World Cup 2023 will start with a match against South Africa. This clash is scheduled to take place on October 7, 2023, at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi. Sri Lanka will play two warm-up matches to strengthen their preparations for the World Cup. In these warm-up games, Sri Lanka will face Bangladesh and Afghanistan.
