Sri Lanka Cricket said today that all-rounder Jeevan Mendis has sustained an injury at practice sessions and therefore Upul Tharanga will be sent to Melbourne immediately in case he was needed.


“It has been notified that Jeevan Mendis has injured at practices and is presently awaiting the ICC's doctors to visit and asses him and his medical reports will be forwarded to the ICC Technical Committee for a replacement,” the SLC said.


“However due to the time constraints the Selection Committee, Coach and Captain has requested that Upul Tharanga be sent to Melbourne immediately in case he is needed,” it added.

    How on earth these guys get injured so easily, they may be real softies though they look solid.

    Dian Tuesday, 24 February 2015 05:39 PM

    Thank God SL can include someone who can play cricket now in that place

    Jerome wijeratne Tuesday, 24 February 2015 05:48 PM

    Jeewan is useless on these fast and bouncy tracks,,,,tharanga will be worst . Bad discision by selectorts.

    SL Tuesday, 24 February 2015 02:52 PM

    Blessing in Disguise!!! Upul should have been in the playing 11 anyway

    They should have sent Kusal rather than sending a replacement fast bowler. Kusal is the ideal candidate at the present condition. Sending Upul at this moment is tactical as he can score runs in the middle order with load of experience. Good luck Sri Lanka, you can do it again as in 1996, God bless the team.

    Good Move, Upul should open with Dilshan and Tirimana should come 4 down in place of Dimuthu. Drop Dimuthu from the playing 11

    Tactical injury? or......

    Ceylonese Tuesday, 24 February 2015 03:18 PM

    Upul the lucky factor in last two CWCs. He did his maximum to get SL through to the finals in both occasions though he failed the finals and SL lost too. Good luck Upul via DM Android App

    If not fishing in the slip cordon.

    Don Don Tuesday, 24 February 2015 03:45 PM

    Upul Tharanga? Sure, we will not win this time too.3 consecutive maiden overs to Zaheer Khan in 2011 WC finals, who would forget this bad luck.Bad luck SL.

    iranga Tuesday, 24 February 2015 03:51 PM

    you are another sumanadasa type person....

    LOL Tuesday, 24 February 2015 03:55 PM

    We are certainly trying hard to get knocked out early in this world cup, the only place Upul T will be successful in Australia, is on the Great Barrier Reef.

    sri lankan Tuesday, 24 February 2015 03:56 PM

    Welcome move. He can be a replacement for Karunaratne to improve the middle order. Include Senanayake as a all rounder for Jeevan.

    AAA Tuesday, 24 February 2015 04:30 PM

    Maybe Sana beat him up for low scoring?lol Next, Sana should beat up Karunaratne and send him home, bring back Kusal Perera.

    karume Tuesday, 24 February 2015 04:35 PM

    Tharanga is a ball waster. We should have sent Kusal.

    Lawry Tuesday, 24 February 2015 04:46 PM

    Blessing in disguise indeed. What ever it is jeevan had great enthusiasm.

    nbw Tuesday, 24 February 2015 04:52 PM

    ha ha...he is the unlucky factor in the other way...
