Sri Lankan fast bowler Pradeep to miss Bangladesh game

Sri Lankan fast bowler Pradeep to miss Bangladesh game”

Their key pace bowler Nuwan Pradeep has been ruled out for the next game due to dislocating the little finger of his right hand.

Sri Lanka will be without the services of opening bowler Nuwan Pradeep for their next game against Bangladesh on Tuesday (June 11) due to a dislocated finger. However, their third match was abandoned without a ball bowled and both Sri Lanka and Pakistan were handed over one point each.

Batsman Kusal Perera was in the nets when Pradeep's delivery send the ball flying towards the bowler's face.

Although the seamer was able to get his hand in the way, he suffered a blow to his finger on his bowling hand.

Pradeep injured his finger on his bowling hand but is likely to be fit within a week, according to ICC. He was in serious pain and was taken to the hospital to examine the seriousness of the injury.

Team manager Asthana de Mel said: "Nuwan was given treatment at the hospital while the doctors reset his dislocated finger and the cut on his finger was closed with stitches".

Sri Lanka faced a massive 10-wicket defeat against New Zealand in their first match but made a solid comeback and overpowered Afghanistan by 34 runs.

Pradeep has always been injury-prone and has often been ruled out for months on account of hamstring complaints.

The blow came at a frustrating time as Sri Lanka's next clash is against Bangladesh on Tuesday and especially because Pradeep was in sync with his bowling rhythm. Kasun Rajitha, the 26-year-old right-arm quick, has been traveling with the squad as a standby player. After playing Bangladesh, Sri Lanka will play Australia on June 15 at The Oval.
