As per the report revealed in DailyFT, ‘Perera, it’s learnt, picked up the harm through the ODI sequence in England and performed with it as a result of unavailability of a correct substitute within the squad.’
Following the harm, Perera didn’t even flip up for practices that Sri Lankan Staff undertook on Wednesday on the R. Premadasa Worldwide Cricket Stadium. The batsman’s progress is being intently monitored by the medical employees.
The onus of senior participant Perera’s unavailability will fall closely on Dhananjaya de Silva, who stays the one senior batsman within the squad.
