Sri Lanka Veteran Herath To Miss Third Test Against India
The Sri Lanka Cricket on Tuesday confirmed that veteran spinner Rangana Herath will sit out the third Test against India at Pallakelle due to back stiffness.
The 39-year-old, a veteran of 83 Tests, bowled 91 overs in the first two Tests which the hosts lost to India. The third Test begins on August 12.
“The decision comes as a result of SLC’s Sports Medicine Unit declaring Herath ‘unavailable for selection’ due to an increased risk of injury calculated from his workload leading up to the 3rd Test,” a SLC statement read. Virat Kohli Has a Special Message for Sword MasterRavindra Jadeja
